My dear friends and parishioners,
I wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude and thanks for all the ways you are loving and caring for my family and I during this difficult time. Truly, thank you is not even enough. I am overwhelmed with deep thanks and gratitude. I wish I could thank and hug each of you personally for love and support.
Almost every day I receive beautiful cards in the mail with prayers and love from many of the wonderful people of this community. Your prayers, meals, notes, good wishes, and Mass cards bring comfort to my heart. Thank you for praying and caring for me. I am proud to be your deacon. Please know I hold each of you in my prayers and offer my physical suffering for you and your family.
What a true privilege it is to be your deacon, to be a part of this spiritual family. I hope to see you at a Christmas Mass. I send you all my love, thanks, and prayers,
