First, I want to thank you for the cards, notes, and gifts for my birthday. Thank you so much! I do appreciate it. I have been so appreciative of your kindness as I move in, making me feel at home.
I also want to thank you for your continued Stewardship in the parish. Thank you for your weekly generosity, during these times, which critically helps build the kingdom Of God in our area. The support you give to ministry and our parish is so vital.
I also want to say thank you to everyone who volunteers in so many ways. I have enjoyed seeing parishioners helping out simply because of their love for their parish family and Jesus. A key part of being a disciple of Jesus Christ is taking the initiative, and sharing whatever gift one feels called to share. Thank you to all!
