“I want to thank everyone for their prayers while on my little trip/vacation. I felt them and God’s protection all along the way, as everything went really well and I had no problems. Of course, while I really enjoyed my trip, especially the new woodturning experiences, I am most happy to be back with you and look forward to a fun and eventful summer and all our coming events. Thanks for taking care of everything while I was gone, and keeping them going. Let’s now move forward and continue to make our parishes – living witnesses of faith. God Bless you.”…Fr. Dave
