Dear parishioners, I have the privilege to vest Scott Valentyn for the Deaconate in Rome this Thursday, October 1. I leave for Chicago this Sunday, September 27, after 8:30 a.m. Mass, and on to Rome at 5:00 p.m,; please keep Scott in prayer at this time. Following my return on October 4th to Chicago, I go to Mundelein for an eight-day retreat that is required yearly for all those in the “institute for Priestly Formation Program.” For this reason, I will be unavailable until my return October 14th. Know that while I am in Rome - and on a silent retreat - I will be unable to receive or return any calls. Please support Fr. William while aI am gone. The first weekend, we will have a missionary - so Fr. William will have some help.
Thank you, and God bless you,
Fr. Tom Farrell
P.S. Do know that September 29th is Fr. William's birthday - I planned this so I don’t have to get him a present - Ha Ha!
