Father David Leaving Saint Mary's

Surprised no one posted this but Saint Mary's Church will be getting a new Pastor soon, as Father David will be moving to Saint Rose Church in Belvidere to be their new Pastor. Wonder if the Bishop made this change, since he is a new Bishop and Saint Mary's School closed years ago and church enrollment is down. I wish Father David the best but hopefully they get a more upbeat and personable Pastor for that Church to revitalize the Church and down the road look to bring back the school.

Interesting that there is no letter from Father David on... More
