It is apparently time for a change. There comes a moment in every week that is a day of rest. Without that Sabbath rest we become unhealthy. Sabbaticals are like that too. Like the rest of a Sunday dinner, my provincial has deemed that after 23 years of constant work it is time for the Sabbath rest of a Sabbatical. I will be leaving St. Edwards on June 28, 2015, after the 10:00 a.m. mass. As a parish there is much to be proud of. We have an outstanding choir. There is an exemplary core of servers and acolytes. We went from one bus to five and were commended by our bishop for our participation in the West Coast Walk for Life. The bishop has also commended our increased reverence and the use of Gregorian chant. St. Edward has become a beacon of light for those interested in learning more about their faith. As I leave St. Edward, please know that I will always include you in my prayers, regardless of whether you supported my pastoral ministry these last 11 years, or not. I take with me many wonderful memories and treasured friends. It has been a great journey and I will always be grateful. There will be a farewell reception after the 5:00 pm Mass on June 27.
