From the desk of Fr. Neil...
As we age, a new rhythm enters our life. While it may be slower, it also can reveal a new kind of beauty. There comes a time to put aside many of the administrative responsibilities and listen more clsoely to the voice of God.
After 45 years as a priest, 25 years as pastor of St. Patrick's Pro-Cathedral, and 10 years as pastor of St. John's, I have requested that the Archbishop grant me retirement. He has graciously done so, but also blessed us with the appointment of a young, dedicated and inspirational priest, Fr. Bismarck Chau. I know you will support him with the same love and generosity you have shown me.
I will forever be in awe of God's blessings in my life. With your prayers and support, the great mission of St. John's will continue to be a beacon of light and hope!
