“I just wanted to take a quick minute to share with you about our visit this past weekend. The visit had been planned before the fire and we made the decision to come anyway.
Fr. Paul had been our priest for more than half my Catholic life as I joined the Church at 18. So we decided to travel to see him and meet his new parish. It was a wonderful mass despite the venue change.
They say in times of tragedy, you see the true nature of people. In that way we were very blessed to see the true nature of your parish. What a wonderful, welcoming group of people despite the tragedy you were all dealing with.
You will all be in our prayers in the coming days and months. We look forward to coming to visit again once the church is restored.
