Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

This is my final column for the parish website.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you being such an important part of my life and priestly ministry. The last 12 years with you has been amazing and I am so grateful for the privilege journeying with you.

As we part ways, please realize how deeply you have touched my life and been a blessing to me. I wish you all of God’ blessings in the years ahead with your new pastor, Fr. Wichert. Please keep me in your prayers and let’s pray always to remain strong in our faith and joyful in the Holy Spirit!

in Christ,
Fr. James Northrop
