Dear Friends and Fellow Parishioners,
What a blessing you are to me and our parish! Thank you very much for your gifts to me on the occasion of my Pastoral Installation. How blessed we were to have Cardinal Wuerl present for our celebration. “Deeply moving and uplifting…”, he said.
It was the Holy Spirit who brought me to St. Matthias at a time when I needed some light work to let my heart heal following surgery. Low and behold after four years…well, you know the rest of the story!
So together, you and I, we are going to continue the path to success in bringing the message of the Church and Jesus Christ to so many.
