FROM THE PASTOR
It’s hard to believe, but this is my last weekend at St. Mary’s. Goodbyes are never easy, and change is always hard for us all – but it’s a normal part of life. The up side is that with change, there is always opportunity for growth and for new beginnings.
I will certainly take many precious memories of my time here at St. Mary’s with me to my new assignment! I am grateful to the Lord for the many blessing He has bestowed upon me here, and for the privilege of being a part of your lives. I am especially thankful for the gift of your faith, which runs so strong here at St. Mary’s. Thank you for your discipleship and your willingness to grow in holiness – so many of you have been a true inspiration for me, in ways you will never know, and I am forever grateful for all you are and all you do.
May the Lord bless and keep you always!
Sincerely in Christ,
Special blessings on Father Hammond as he moves to
