The Diocese posted a great article yesterday about our new Parochial Vicar, Father Sahd.
We are once again reminded how blessed we are to have him back at our parish!
“I feel I bring the gifts of understanding and listening to the priesthood,” he said. “It’s being with people in their time of need – their joys, their sufferings, their sorrows – and always leading them to Christ. Your relationship with the people of God needs to bring them to Christ, always with charity.”
