With Sincere Appreciation
As we prepare to allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide us into the next stage of our priestly ministry, know that we pray in thanksgiving and gratitude to our Heavenly Father for having had the opportunity to serve as priests of Jesus Christ in this wonderful parish.
We were both honored and humbled by the prayerful presence of so many parishioners and friends who were able to attend the Farewell Reception that was held in the Rego Auditorium last Sunday afternoon.
Also, we would like to say thank you for the prayerful words of support and encouragement as well as for the many generous gifts that we have received during this time of transition in our lives.
Be assured of our ongoing prayers and know that we humbly ask the same of you.
Peace and Prayers,
Rev. Msgr. Victor M. Vieira &
Rev. Richard A. Narciso
