blessings to all.
I wish to
convey my message of solidarity to all of you in these trying moments of our
lives as a parish. I continue to pray with you, as we continue to
pray for one another, trusting that our Almighty God will soon lift us up from
the clutches of the pandemic.
devastating impact to our economy brought about by COVID-19 is common knowledge
to everyone. In line with the directives of our Diocese, I had
to take difficult actions in terminating some positions in our parish office,
while placing others under reduced hours, effective May 1, 2020. I personally
opted also to give back 10% of my compensation to the parish.
I want to express
my profound gratitude to all of our parish staff for their unparalleled and
dedicated service to Saint John. In the
spirit of oneness with them and with you, we continue to move forward with full
faith and expectant joy that God will lead us to the redemption from this
Mother of God…..pray for us. Jesus, I trust in you.
