I ask you to join me in thanking Father John for his faithful service to St. Ann last week during my bout with the flu. His assistance was a Godsend in every sense of the word. I also thank you for your patience and understanding during my sickness.
Many thanks to everyone who gave me cards, gifts, and best wishes for my birthday, including the St. Ann Bakers for providing homemade birthday treats during Mass+…
Lastly, I thank my office staff for keeping the parish running while I was “away.”
Father Thomas McCarthy
P.S. Perhaps I will think about getting a flu shot for next year!
