Haven't posted in a while, busy with Advent events and celebrations. In the midst of my Advent planning I was surprised to receive a phone call and subsequent meeting about a reassignment in the next few weeks. I will be leaving my first pastorate of Epiphany of our Lord and heading west to Immaculate Heart of Mary, New Melle. While I know this is all part of my ministry, it is far from easy. I have loved this assignment very much and will miss so many people and things about my life here. I suspect gaming will come to halt for a good while as I adjust to the changes and learn the ropes at a new place. I have made a home wherever life leads me , I am sure I will do so there.
I am blessed to have been here for seven and a half years of my priesthood. I imagined it would be longer, but my life is not entirely mine to plan. I pray this will be my best Christmas at Epiphany and deepen the gratitude I have for all the people I love here.
