Note from Father Dave

Dear Family of Queen of Heaven,

I cannot thank you enough for all your kind words, prayerst and support for your pastor these past couple of weeks .. .first to tell you one weekend I am moving on and then the next weekend I am staying. I am so grateful to God and our bishop for helping me to see more clearly that Queen of Heaven is a good fit for me and I am here for the long run to serve you ... with the grace of God.

Having said that, I want to reaffirm all of you. Each and every one of you are so important to me. I hope you know that I pray for you daily, and I beg for your prayers as well. I am most grateful to all of you who support your parish with time, talent and treasure.

How very blessed we are here in so many ways ... to have a Perpetual Adoration Chapel 24/7 available for prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament; the daily Mass crowd is a minimum of 50 and usually over 100 people (what an inspiration you are to me); the wonderful prayer gardens and stations walk; the wonderful community spirit we have in Green; and certainly, the gift all of you are to me.

Thank you for your love, prayerst and support. Promising you mine.
Fr. Dave
