Thanks to One and All who worked so hard to make our Advent and Christmas time at Saint Rita such a grace-filled time. On behalf of all of us, I would like to thank profoundly all our staff and volunteers for teaming up for the coordination of our Advent Giving Tree to receive and organize the mountain of generosity that came from all who participated. Verbally and in writing, I have received an overflow of compliments and expressions of thanks for the beautiful programs and liturgies. It really is all about YOU who are Saint Rita Parish. I feel most blessed to be your pastor and I look forward as we embrace another year of promise.
Thanks too for all your cards and gifts!!! Overwhelming—but wonderful. A real affirmation of this pastor who wishes to forge a lasting and enduring faith community with you.
And now, he rests!—I will be on vacation from January 6-10.
