This past weekend marked the end of my tenure at St. Peter's. It was truly a blessing and a gift. We are grateful for the awesome farewell party the parish threw for us, and Tony Scalzitti did an amazing impression of me! The notes, gifts, kind words, and blessings were overwhelming...and continue to overwhelm me. To all a St Peter's: Thank you for the last three years and shaping me into the person and priest I am today. Sunday evening at SPY was a blast...and a true gift. This group of kiddos is amazing. I love them more than I can ever express. They are the most welcoming, loving bunch. And they are great evangelists! I am grateful for their faithfulness and commitment to one another, St Peter's, the SPY community, and to their faith and lives in the way of Jesus. Words fail to fully express what these kiddos mean to me. I love you...each and every one of you! May God continue to be a blessing in and through each of you and this community as a whole. My friends: Life is short, and we do not have too much time to gladden the hearts of those who travel with us, so be quick to love and make haste to be kind.
And the blessing of God, who made us, who loves us, and who travels with us, be with you now and forever.
