Dear parishioners, family, and friends,
I will be taking some time off from parish duties beginning January 28, 2013. The idea originated in me and it was a decision I alone made. I did ask the bishop for his permission, and it was granted. I will be addressing some concerns related to anxiety.
Another priest or priests will be covering the duties of the parish while I am gone. I will be at a facility specifically designed for the wellness and health of catholic clergy, men and women religious. I will be returning to resume my duties as Pastor.
I ask for your patience and understanding, and of course, your prayers. Please respect my right for privacy. Please know that I will be praying for all of you daily.
Sincerely in Christ, Fr. Cecilio
