Dear Friends,


I have some exciting but sad news to share.  I am leaving my position at St. Francis de Sales on January 10th .   The Sisters with whom I have been writing and leading retreats for the last few years have asked me to take on the role of Vocation Director for their Order.  It is a wonderful and unique opportunity, and so I have accepted. Although I will continue to help with sacramental retreats and Virtus training, I will be with you much less often. 

When I introduced myself from the ambo eleven years ago, I told you that I was impressed by how welcoming this community is.  That still amazes me, as do your giving hearts.  Thank you for letting me be a part of your lives.  Thank you too for your constant support and for your understanding at those times when I have been impatient or short.  I will miss all of you and thank you from the bottom of my heart for the blessing that you have been in my life.  

You will remain in my heart and prayers,
