Grace and peace. Tomorrow is Karen Melchar’s last day as our Parish Administrator. Karen has been an important person in the life of our staff for the past 11 years. I trust her implicitly and have relied on her trusted input for my entire tenure at St. Patrick’s. Before I got married, Karen had permission to access my house key in my building because I knew she would save my life. So, I don’t know what will happen to us over the next several weeks as we await the start of Mary Beth Howard’s tenure at St. Patrick’s on February 14. I do know that our patterns will change. There is nothing wrong with change and often that helps us see new opportunities. I pray that Karen’s departure will bring her joy and peace. I am thankful that we will continue to have her in our parish life. Look out Rummage Sale!!!
Celebrate Karen’s tenure as our Parish Administrator this Sunday, February 3 at the 10am service.
PS. The Way of Love continued on Sunday with the first in a series of forum to share ideas to reconnect our lives with the Love of Jesus.
