As I wind down my tenure here as your pastor I can’t help but be deeply grateful for the relationships that have come about over the years. I especially am thankful for the pastoral staff, especially the present group, who have served our community so faithfully for many years. I would need several pastor columns to speak of each of them separately. Suffice it to say that they have always had your welfare at heart in all they do. They aren’t in it for the money, believe me. Each of them expresses stewardship as a way of life and they practice it. I have come to realize that they will be friends for life. Fr. Bill is inheriting a real treasure. Take the time to thank them. I most certainly do.
