I don’t know where seven years have gone. Wow. Everyone keeps telling me that it just keeps going faster as you get older…and I certainly believe them. Looking back on my time here, I hope in some small, medium, or big way, the good Lord used me as an instrument to grow in your faith, hope, or love. That’s really all that matters: that I was a help and not a hindrance to the working of the Holy Spirit in your life. If I was a help to you, Praise God. If I was a hindrance to you in any way, I am truly sorry. I desire nothing but the best for each of your souls. You will always be in my prayers and in my heart wherever the Lord takes me.
Our Lady of Peace is a beautiful parish. Yes, the building itself is very beautiful, but more importantly the faith and love of the people is very beautiful and it has been a privilege to serve you for these seven years as your pastor. Please always keep me in your prayers as well. In prayer we will always be united in the Sacred Heart of Jesus, through the intercession of His Holy Mother’s Immaculate heart…Our Lady of Peace.
A few practical tidbits as I say farewell…
1) Know that I do plan to be back in August for two consecutive weekends, covering for Fr. Binu who will be on vacation. August 10-11 and August 15-18. The second week includes the Holy Day of Obligation (Aug. 15) and the 18th is the Church picnic which I plan to attend. So it will be nice to see everyone again in just a couple months and to be able to get in the dunk tank one more time!
2) Know that the pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 2020 is still a go! May 3-20 will be the dates. As soon as flights are reserved and prices are settled I will be getting word back to Ironwood for people to start officially reserving spots. It is open to anyone throughout the Diocese and beyond. It will roughly be about $3,500/$3,800 per person for the whole trip.
3) Please keep our Honduras mission in prayer and if you have any last minute Mass intentions for me to take down and give to Father Abel, please get them to me this weekend or Monday by noon in the office. (Suggested donation for Mass is $5.00 and checks can be made out to me personally.)
May the Peace of Christ be with you always!
