PASTORS PULPIT

On Thursday, May 18th, I celebrated the 50th anniversary of Ordination to the Priesthood. 

In the Fall of 2017, I was asked, and agreed to stay on as Pastor of St. Paul’s and Mt. Carmel for another year, until November 1, 2018. I had every intention of doing so. However, since the First of this year (2018), I have experienced a series of health issues, which, after reflection, prayer and consultation, have convinced me that I have to retire earlier than I first thought.

Therefore, I will retire from active Parish Ministry as of July 1st, 2018.

I cannot thank the people of St. Paul’s and Our Lady of Mt. Carmel nor express my deep gratitude to them for the patience, kindness, love and concern they have shown to me, especially since this past January.

I know that this time of transition will be a difficult and worry some time for many. Keep the faith, which is vibrant and strong in both parishes. Support one another and don’t listen to rumors or give in to gossip The Lord will respond to your needs as He sees best. He always has, hasn’t he?

Pray for me, I will continue to pray for you. God Bless the parishioners of St. Paul the Apostle and of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parishes.
