We bid farewell to seminarian Kyle Bell, who is leaving the parish to go back to seminary. For the last two months, Kyle has been part of the parish, participating in many aspects of parish life such as homebound and house visits with priests, visits to the nursing home, RCIA, Vacation Bible School, Respect Life ministry, not to mention Masses, funerals, weddings and much more. We wish him well and keep him in our prayers as he continues his preparation for the priesthood.
