As of this weekend, our beloved Father Dave has moved on to St. Lawrence Parish in Goffstown, NH. We wish him all the best in his new assignment and know that his new flock will come to love him as much as we do. There were tears and laughter during the reception we had for him last week, and he certainly knows our prayers will follow him wherever he goes.

Thank you to Bishop Libasci for being here this weekend. Our Parish eagerly awaits news about our next pastor, and we look forward to welcoming him to “Our Church away from Home” as Father Dave so lovingly called our little parish in the mountains.

Looking ahead, we must remember we are a community of believers, and we owe it to Father Dave to keep his joy and love of Christ in our hearts. He set us on a trajectory of love for community and for the members of our Parish…it’s up to us to keep the momentum going. We’ll need each other as we move forward to support the wonderful events he loved and the spirit of community he fostered in us.
