lfbanner3a summer
I have been blessed to have had this wonderful experience to serve my summer ministry at St. Therese Little Flower Parish in South Bend. I would like to take this opportunity to reach out and thank each and every person that I had the privilege of meeting on this spiritual journey. I especially want to thank Fr. Terry, my special, spiritual, guidance mentor for allowing me to grow and learn many important lessons here at St. Therese. Thank you, Fr. Terry.

Thank you all for the love, friendship, and support you have shown me during my assignment here. You have all been like a "blanket of warmth and love" to me during this time. I will cherish and love those moments forever.

As a Seminarian, my goal is to devote my daily routine to love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ, every moment of every day. I pray that you all remember me, and my Seminarian Brothers in your daily prayer. The power of prayer will get us through any obstacles we face in our daily lives. We will all be praying for you also.

Today as I leave you, I thank God for having all of you in my life for this short period of time. I have silently received a positive, touching lesson from each of you.

God Bless You All, My Forever Friends
Yours in Christ,
