Thank you for all the kindness you have shown to me over the past 5 years, especially as I celebrated my final weekend of Masses as your associate pastor this past weekend.
I am grateful for the opportunity to have been part of your parish family and this special neighborhood. Know you will all remain in my prayers as I continue my priestly service in my new role as Director of the Office of Diocesan Priestly Vocations. Thank you for your prayers for me and your prayers for an increase of vocations to priestly ministry in our diocese.
Gratefully, Father Phil Smith
