Tomorrow, August 9, I will commence my annual leave, but will not be returning to St. Edmund’s after that. I will be taking up a new posting somewhere else at the end of my annual leave on September 1, 2021.
Thus, permit me to use this moment to say a big thank you to all of you here in St. Edmund’s – from the parish priest, Fr. Steve, to all the clergy, from the secretaries to the housekeeper and the premises manager, from the stewards to the choristers and all the parish volunteers, and from my few closer friends to all the members of the parish, both young and aged – for the manner in which you welcomed me and gave me the opportunity to serve both God and humanity, and to grow in my relationships with God and people. May the Good Lord bless and reward you abundantly!
