My Dearest Parishoners,
Glory to Jesus Christ.
Although I am at the FOCUS conference this weekend, now is still the opportune time to share the most recent news:  I am going to be the chaplain for the Abbey of St. Walburga, effective January of 2013.  We saw a very great need there, and it is liturgically in-concert with how I feel called to offer the Holy Sacrifice.  This week, Archbishop Aquila declared it my next assignment. Moreover, it is a time to pray about the move from parish life to religious life, which I will be happy to share with you eventually, even though this chaplaincy is only a six-month assignment.   I will speak during all the Masses of Jan 12th and 13th, and I hope to see you after them.  In the mean time, please know that I tell all my friends outside the parish that I couldn’t have hoped for better families than those of St. Joseph’s.  I will truly miss you so much with all my heart, but I will not be far away at the Abbey for this small chapter of my life.
Also, although I will not be able to write personalized thank you’s before I leave, I want to thank so many of you for your excellent Christmas cards and generous gift cards.
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
Fr. Dave
