Thank You!

I just wanted to post a quick thank you to everyone for the gracious cards; the prayers and good wishes offered therein, and to those who contributed to my delinquencies. It has been a real honor and privilege to serve our Lord, 3 pastors, and you – the parishioners of St. Joseph. 

I ask that you help Gina out as much as possible and show her the same friendship and assistance that you gave so freely to me.  We didn’t have a lot of time to turn over a trove of information, so she will need your help – especially if you are connected with a parish event.

You have my eternal gratitude.  Now, if you know of a job opening…

God bless,

Jim
