THANK YOU

To my parish families and friends of St Augustine, St Benedict and St Mary, I would personally like to thank all of you for making me feel a part of your parish families over the past several years. I would also like to thank you for the kind monetary gift you recently gave me as well. It was always my pleasure to celebrate masses with you. Each one of you always made me feel welcome. You will all be in my prayers and may each and every one of you continue to receive the blessing and love of Our Lord Jesus Christ and of his Blessed Mother Mary. Thank You again.

Yours in Christ, Father Dominic
