FR. SEVERINE AWAY

Dear parishioners:

If everything goes well, I will be traveling to Tanzania to visit my family for one month from January 13 to February 10. Keep me in your prayers as I travel during this time. I would like to THANK all the staff of our parishes and all brother priests who will be serving your pastoral needs during my time away. May God bless them and strengthen them as they minister to your pastoral needs. Thank you for the support you have always given to me in my ministry to you. I do appreciate it and you will always be in my prayers.
