Message from Fr Jerome:

As I leave . . . . . . there are so many things I want to thank you for, that I hesitate to make a start: to thank you for all the work and different parish ministries you have engaged in with such energy and enthusiasm, for wise advice given and quiet encouragement, for friendliness & forgiveness, for cheerfulness & laughter even when things didn’t turn out quite as they should. My thanks must also be a plea for your forgiveness for any past wrong or unkindness on my part. Yet I am grateful to you for something more than all this: it is for being a family of faith in which my faith has been strengthened and my ministry as a priest among you has been affirmed. Simply put: for being for me a ‘family’ I could truly call my ‘home’ for nearly thirteen years. Thank you!
