06-14-2015Weekly ReflectionFr. Tim Christy

Dear Parish Family:

I would like to share with you that Fr. Joseph has been assigned as Parochial Vicar of St. Bernadette Church in Parlin, New Jersey and will be leaving our parish at the end of next month.

Over the past six years, the contributions that Fr. Joseph has made to St. Magdalen are invaluable. From his compassionate involvement with the Divorce Care ministry to his important task of leading the Spanish ministry, a work of the Spirit that has borne much fruit for the parish. Fr. Joseph has truly personified the mission of St. Magdalen de Pazzi Church. His efforts have led to a more fully integrated yet diverse community. In addition to these ministries, Fr. Joseph has also served the parish through visiting the sick and giving the sacraments to the infirm and dying.
