Time to Change Gears

Short Thoughts 06 25 17

By now many of you have heard that I am retiring from St. James.  While it is true as of June 30, 2017 I am retiring as an employed member of the pastoral staff, I will continue to be a deacon here at St. James.  I will be present on weekends to assist at the Masses and will continue to perform various ministries both within and outside of the parish.  Most importantly, I will continue to be available to serve the many parishioners I have come to know over the years that I have been associated with St. James.  Even though I will no longer have formal office hours here at St. James, I am still available to meet with and give support to you.  Should you need to contact me; the office will know how to reach me.  So why am I retiring?  We all know and understand that there comes a time when you feel the need to slow down.  Over the past couple of years I have been reflecting upon this and feel that time is now.  What will I do?  Maybe I will make up some of that lost time with Sharon, my wife.  I consider retiring not stopping, but rather changing gears.  Thank you, St. James, for continuing to be a part of my life.
