Message from Fr. Tom
It was with a heavy heart that I announced to you last weekend that, effective June 1st, I will be transferred from our collaborative to a new assignment at the parishes of St. Rose and and St. Agnes in Topsfied and Middleton. The pastor of St. Rose and St. Agnes, Fr. Michael Medas, is an Air Force chaplain. He recently received and generously answered a call to serve our Catholic men and women in the military who are sacrificing so much for our safety. Because of my familiarity with the parishes (I was assigned there during the summer of 2013 between my priesthood ordination and my last year studying in Rome) the Cardinal will be sending me there for the next year to care for the people while the pastor is away.
It has been an honor to serve you during these past two years in Dorchester. There has certainly been no lack of excitement during my time with you! Over and over again I have marveled at your patience, understanding, and generosity toward me. Wherever I go I will always carry the wisdom and love you shared with me during my time with you. While there is a heaviness in having to say goodbye in June, it is gratitude, not sorrow, that I feel most strongly as I reflect upon the years I have spent coming to know and love you as your priest. Christ has blessed me so richly through you. May we always be one in Him and with one another in our shared communion in His Body and Blood.
In prayerful gratitude,
Saint Ann Neponset
