Please know how grateful I am for the outpouring of love that I received from all of you at my Installation Mass. I’ve been here only a short while as your pastor, but I feel so embraced that I hear the Lord Himself saying to me, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you.” Like a child being baptized, I am being given everything even before having done anything to deserve it. And thank you very much for the cards and for the gifts - I do appreciate your kindness and your generosity. I remember you in my prayers. Please continue to remember me in yours. +
