I am announcing it with an overwhelming heart that I will be moved from St. Louis Church after being privileged to be with the greatest people for 10 years, to the Diocese of Venice in Florida, a decision taken by my Religious Order. I knew it would happen since I have been here 10 years and that is the longest I have ever been in one place, which of course was my greatest blessing as a priest, because I was able to minister with the greatest Pastor and some great and good friends, the other associates and the parish staff. The love, concern, friendship and fellowship that I have experienced made me make my home here and it is very difficult to give up this wonderful part of my life, but the decisions of the Superiors are to be obeyed. Every member of this parish has influenced me in one way or other and I would like to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for the way you treated me, as a member of your own family. What a great blessing, that only a priest can experience!!! I sure will miss you but will always be in my heart and prayers!!!
