May God Grant Him Many Years

Prayers of gratitude flowed on Sunday, September 17 as we surprised Fr George and Psa Marian with a coffee hour on the fourteenth anniversary of his Ordination to the Priesthood. Parish Council president Bob Nicola commented that "we wouldn't be here if it wasn't for Fr George and we wouldn't be the community we are if he wasn't here to lead us."

After a chorus of " God Grant You Many Years, " Ladies President Betsy Cipu presented Psa Marian with a bouquet of flowers.   Fr. George  reminded us "it takes a village and we have to remember to love each other, love the Lord and love this community."  

"The people present are the main support of this parish and don't ever give that up. Bring your children, grandchildren and godchildren. Let this parish countinue when we are gone from here and our decendants take over for us."
La Multi Ani and Good Health to Fr George and Psa Marian from a grateful parish.
