I write to you today to inform you that as of September 1st, I will be ending my assignment as Pastor of St. Mary's. Beginning on September 1, I will become the Pastor of St. Edith Stein, Our Lady of Lourdes, and Christ the King parishes in Brockton.
While this new assignment is not one I had sought, I accepted the Cardinal's specific request in a spirit of filial and fraternal obedience.
I have loved being your pastor. This is the longest amount of time I've lived anywhere since my Ordination and you have all taken me in and given me so much. I'm grateful to have had the joy, honor, and opportunity of serving you. I say it often, this is a great town; this is a great parish. You are great people.
May the Lord who has done such great things for and with you all, continue His work and bring it to fulfillment.
Please pray for me and the people of my Brockton parishes. Know that I will continue to pray for you.
Thanks and God bless!
