25th Anniversary as Pastor - I take this opportunity to Thank everyone for the celebration on the occasion of serving the parish for 25 years as pastor, and 30th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood. The chasuble was a wonderful gift which is especially beautiful and I look forward to wearing it during the Christmas season. The cards, greetings, gifts, cake, and flowers in the Hall were also very generous, thoughtful, and greatly appreciated!
I thank Susan, Kathy, Fran, and Pat for putting everything together and all who helped carry it out. Its difficult to surprise me - but you did!
God’s Blessings for your thoughtfulness! - Father Charles
