We are entering into a new phase in our faith community. We are collaborating with Saint Mary's. Father Mulvehill is retiring. For some this new phase may be difficult and strange. The beauty of our faith is the newness that is always coming into our lives. Each of us has the fleeting moments of joy and happiness. We have many fond memories. These memories of love and happiness, which no one can steal. We are thankful for all we have had and will continue to have. Each of us has been enriched by Father. Each of us will have these lasting memories. Each of us has been given a gift of a lifetime. There is no sadness, there is only joy and great thanks for having someone so wonderful coming into our lives. Our gift back is to continue with all we have been given and embrace our faith with the same amount, if not more, to whatever new experience comes our way. Every person who comes into our lives has a purpose. Sometimes this purpose cannot be known until a later time and that is ok. When this purpose is realized we remember without a moment's hesitation and this brings a smile to our face. This is the purpose we each possess. Bringing joy to one another in ways no one can imagine.
