A very happy birthday to Fr. Gerry! Today’s celebrations were bittersweet – happy because Fr. Gerry has been with us longer than we could ever have hoped, and it was a privilege to congratulate him – but sad because this is the very last birthday we will be celebrating at our parish, for Fr. Gerry retires in six weeks and will no longer be with us… Wherever he goes, he will always be in our prayers and we will forever be grateful for his service to our community for the past 18 years!
