Message from the Pastoral Leader…

Welcome to our Website!

Last weekend I announced that Bishop Thomas has accepted my resignation as Pastoral Leader of Saint Richard. What an amazing privilege it has been to serve here in this wonderful parish community for the past five years.

I mentioned that this opportunity was totally unexpected. Vince Ambrosetti back in April at our Parish Mission began to talk with me about some of the ventures that he and his organization is working on. He laid out for me a broad range of responsibilities that hold many possibilities for using more of my gifts. I will be employed with ILP (International Liturgy Publications) and Lamb Publications in Nashville Tennessee. In addition I will be part of Faith on Fire Missions and serve as General Manager and Program Director of two Catholic radio stations that Vince owns and operates within the Diocese of Nashville.

Father Adam will serve as Parochial Administrator until such time that a permanent replacement is named by the Bishop. He will continue as Pastor of St. Joan of Arc. During these next few weeks I will continue to work with Father Adam and the staff to facilitate a smooth transition.

Thank you for your kind words last weekend and I humbly ask for your prayers that I will continue to be open to where God is leading.

Enjoy the summer, relax more, be renewed and refreshed.

Deacon Jerry
