Dear Parish Family,
Happy Anniversary everyone! Believe it or not, August 1st marks our one year anniversary as a yoked community. Last year at this time I wrote in my August newsletter that, “the yoking of our communities has the potential to open doors to new faith opportunities, new friendships, new challenges, and new horizons of growth - as parishes and as individuals.” As I reflect on these past twelve months I think the journey truly included all of these things. It hasn’t always been easy but few things worth having are. I am very proud of what we’ve already achieved and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their cooperation, enthusiasm, sacrifice and faith that has enabled us to let go and allow the Spirit to guide our journey. I often remind myself that the process we are undertaking doesn’t happen overnight but instead evolves over time and matures through prayer and guidance of God.
As long as we keep the Eucharist at the center of our efforts – we’re going to continue growing into the yoked parishes intended by God.
Happy Anniversary everyone!!! May God continue to bless you, your loved ones and our beloved parishes.
