We have a new shepherd in our midst, Father Brian Fabiszewski. He comes to us from Incarnation Catholic Parish in Tampa where he has served as a Parochial Vicar. Fr. Brian visited with me, and our Parish Staff a couple of times and he is very excited that Most Holy Name of Jesus Parish is now his new Spiritual home. Continue to grow with him and enjoy the many gifts he brings that will enrich each one of you. Thank you for welcoming him.
May the LORD keep and protect you and let us remain united in prayer. Amen!
