Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

This past Friday, June 22, marked the end of the third year of my term here as your pastor. It is hard to believe! I remember vividly the day a little more than three years ago that Bishop Malone pulled me aside at a priest meeting that was being held at St. Greg’s to ask me if I would consider taking on this role. I told him that I did not need to think about it. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to come back! In looking back on these three years, I am amazed at what we have accomplished together as a parish family. I thought I would remind us all of the highlights!

Spiritual and Ministerial Growth:

~Refocus Pastoral Council to spiritual needs of parish

~Neighbor in Need dinners

~Rekindle the Fire Within: Praise and Worship Evenings

And so much more…

There is still a lot that we can do together to build the Kingdom of God here at St. Christopher and within our wider community! Thank you for all of your support and know of my prayers for you each and every day!

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
