Fr. Des

Words fail to adequately express my gratitude, admiration and sincere thanks to all who helped make my installation ceremony and celebrations as your Pastor, the wonderful and prayerful occasion it was. It was a wonderful demonstration of the community coming together in direct response to the call of the Gospels. Ceremonies such as these do not just happen, they are the product of much foresight and detailed planning. Friends who attended have continued to contact me to congratulate me on my good fortune in being posted to St. Francis, something I can only concur with!!!

There is a old Gaelic saying in Ireland, ”Tosach maith leath na hoibre ---- A good start is half the work”. It was wonderful to see so many members of the Franciscan Congregation participating in the ceremonies and to experience their goodwill and fellowship, and to know of their continued wish for involvement.  Bishop Soto’s words were challenging and apposite. He wishes to convey his appreciation to all concerned. The warmth of welcome experienced by me at the Sunday Masses is something I will long remember and appreciate. I had to have a cup of tea to process the days’ developments (the Irish and British response to every new experience)!!! As one of my former parishioners said to me, it takes time to get used to my sense of humor.

With renewed thanks, appreciation and blessings. Fr. Des
