Greetings in Christ, Holy Family!

I wanted to start off and thank you all for your many kind words, cards and prayers after my dog, Marius, died. I was pleasantly shocked by your response. He really was a blessing to me and I will miss him, but I know I did the right thing getting him home.

I want to acknowledge Dr. Carole Cocagne, a veterinarian from our parish, who cared for Marius while he was alive and helped him die peacefully when that moment came. Dr. Carole is an amazing doc and I’m so grateful for her.

I’ve had a few of you ask when I’m getting another dog and two people even offered to get me one! This is very generous and I’m grateful, but I don’t think I’ll be getting another.

I do appreciate you all. I know some of you were not fans of the dog and I appreciate your patience as well. He brought a lot of peace and laughter to my life and Dad and I will miss him very much.

On Tuesday, I and a couple staff members will be at a mandatory meeting that the diocese is hosting. Pray for us that day, if you would.

Other than that, it’s a normal week of grace, love and mercy here at Holy Family. I’m so glad to be a part of things here.

Thank you for letting me be your priest.
