Happy Easter! He is risen… Truly He is risen.
We had such a beautiful Easter celebration here this past weekend, and I am so grateful to have been able to share it with all of you. I know many of you were out of town with family, you were missed here at your home parish.
In the midst of this Easter joy I do have some sad news to convey. Just before Easter I received a phone call from the Archdiocese asking me to move to Saint Joseph in Lake Orion and Saint John Fisher, the student chapel on Oakland University campus. As we prepared our parishes to move forward with Families of Parishes, I honestly thought I would be staying here with our family. But God has other plans in store for me and my priesthood.
I am honored that the Archbishop has asked me to take on this new responsibility but yet at the same time deeply saddened to be leaving my newly formed family here at St. Francis-St. Maximilian. I have grown so deeply fond of this area and of all of you. My new assignment does not begin until July 1. There will be plenty of time for goodbyes before then. For now let’s continue to bask in the goodness of our Resurrected Lord Jesus.
Please pray for me and know that I am praying for you daily.
