Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
As you know, the priests of the diocese will gather this week for our Convocation. I realize the sacrifice this entails for all the people in our parishes. Thank you for your understanding. Would you be so kind as to remember us in prayer this week as we gather in prayer, reflection, collaboration and building each other up in the service of the Gospel? Your prayers always sustain us and so I turn to you in this special time. Strengthening the bonds of our communion as priests, we seek to serve you better that we might all be brought closer to the Lord.
Sincerely in Christ,
