Announcement from Fr. John

Archbishop Listecki has asked me to return to Rome to study for a Ph.D. in Biblical theology starting next fall. I am both excited for this opportunity to delve more deeply into God’s life-giving Word, and sad to leave the parishes I have come to love during these first five and a half years of my priesthood. Holy Family–Presentation–Our Risen Savior Tri-parish has been a tremendously welcoming and nurturing home for me, and I am so grateful for the love you have shown me. I will remain at the parish through this summer and am looking forward to savoring these last months with all of you. The selection process for a new associate priest to fill my shoes will begin in the weeks ahead, and Fr. Ryan Pruess will be sure to keep the parish up to date as this process unfolds. Let’s ask the Holy Spirit to guide the selection of a new priest for the parish, and I ask your prayers for me as I begin my transition. Come Emmanuel!
