A blessed All Saints day to all.

Fr. Cornelius has authorized this announcement.  He has recently suffered from several serious health problems that have impaired his ability to continue to pastor our group.  After discussions with our Vicar General, Fr. Hough, and Ordinary, Msgr. Steenson, he has decided to resign his position as our pastor, effective immediately.

We are currently making plans for an interim solution until another pastor can be found for our group.

Msgr. Steenson has assured us that a search is underway, and progress is being made.

Please keep Fr. Cornelius and his family in prayer.

Watch this space for news as it unfolds.
