It is with joy and sadness that we say goodbye to Sister Connie: joy for her to have some respite from the daily routines of the past 18 years and sadness that we will be losing someone who has given so much of herself. It is difficult to find the words to thank Sister Connie for her 17 years of love and dedication to our parish. In addition to performing the duties of Pastoral Associate and Faith Formation Director, she developed many friendships along the way. She took a personal interest at every level of faith formation. We pray for her safety and wish her all good things as she moves to the next phase of her journey with God. May the Holy Spirit guide her in all her endeavors.
