My Very Dear Parishioners,
To say the least, these final weeks I have remaining at St. Rita, as pastor, are so precious; I find myself trying to milk every hour of extra minutes that just are not there. This past week I have received so many urgings to “come by the house” – “we need to get you over before you leave” and “we’ll call Paula and get you on the calendar.” Folks, I just can’t. Simple truth, I feel overwhelmed; I want to say ‘yes’ to everyone, but it is just impossible. YOU ARE ALL VERY SPECIAL TO ME.
