Last week I received the following affirming and welcome letter (click on letter to enlarge):

This week of prayer for us coincides, as you may have realized, with Holy Week, which makes this gift of prayer a special blessing for us. I asked the People of Saint Pius X to pray for us in a special way in this time of transition of leadership from Father Ring to your new pastor. This is the time when those decisions are being made by the Bishop, with an announcement (we hope) in early or mid-May, once the roster of new assignments is complete.

In return, please pray for the People of Saint Pius X, our Bishop, and the people of all our parishes, that we may grow together in unity by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Christ’s peace to you, Father Bob Kennedy
