Message from the Pastoral Leader…

Welcome to our Website!

 On Leaving

It has been five years plus since my first article in our bulletin. I have written on many topics, concerns and hopes. I am thankful if you have read any or all and that at least in some small way at one time or another they have personally spoken to you.

Leaving is never easy especially being in ministry, working side by side with an amazing staff and serving to the best of my ability this faith-filled community of St. Richard. Know that you will be missed and that Saint Richard will always hold a special corner of my heart. Your caring, love and support has changed me and helped to form me into a better husband, Deacon and person. Even in times of disagreements and misunderstandings I have grown into being a more faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.

I want to directly thank the best parish staff in the diocese. We have ministered together, supported one another, shared meals, birthdays and laughs. I could not have succeeded as your Pastoral Leader without this dedicated staff of co-ministers. A special thanks to Ann, Sarah and Jessica whom I worked closely with as our parish leadership team.

Although today there may be questions and uncertainty of the future, know that Father Adam will continue to lead St. Richard into the future with much care and compassion.

Thank you again for who you are and the difference you have made in my life. May God continue to bless St. Richard Parish for many years to come.

With fond memories and much love, I AM…

Deacon Jerry
