FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK
I’m happy to share the news that Mary Sue Taft has been selected as our new Trustee. She is succeeding Bill Kelly and will begin her term of office on July 1. Join me in thanking Bill for his years of generous service and welcoming Mary Sue to this important role.
This is my last weekend at the parish until I return from Canon Law summer school at the end of July. Thus, this is my last column for a while. In preparing to leave for two months, there are certainly mixed feelings. It will be interesting to go back to school, but I will surely miss being here. While I’ll be away from the office, this will still be a very busy summer. There is a lot to learn in a short period of time. Let’s be sure to pray for each other.
During my absence, I’ll be checking my email only occasionally. However, I’ll look in my mailbox every day. Should you care to write, feel free to contact me at:

If all goes as planned, I’ll look forward to seeing you all at the Parish Feast Day celebration on Sunday, July 31. Until then…have a wonderful summer!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
-Fr. Aaron Esch
