Heartfelt thanks to Fr. Strohhofer and Fr. Tubale for their generous ministry over many years. We wish them both abundant blessings at this time of transition from full-time ministry.

We also wish to express our gratitude to all who will be assuming new responsibilities. They have responded to the needs of the archdiocese with generous spirits. We ask the people in parishes where changes are taking place to warmly welcome their new pastoral leaders into their midst.

To all the priests serving our archdiocesan Church, may God bless you abundantly as you continue your ministry with dedication, generosity and joy.
