My time at St. John’s has come to an end and I want to express to you my thanks for your love, support and generosity. I have been blessed to have served here as your pastor (as I have expressed many times). I want to assure you that you will remain in my prayers and I ask a remembrance in yours. Please accept Fr. John with the same love and support with which you accepted me. I know that he will share the Good News of Jesus with you and continue to help this wonderful community deepen its relationship with the Lord. As I leave, I ask God to bless you abundantly and to continue to fill you with his love and his Spirit. Peace and all good things!
