Dear parishioners and friends of Sacred Heart,

I want to thank you all for the love and generosity you shared with me at the Mass on Sunday, 23 June. I thought the choirs, musicians, enthusiastic worshippers and the presentation given by the youth was extraordinary, beautiful and inspiring.

I gave as best as I could to Sacred Heart in the six years that I was pastor and I know that it has changed my life for the better and helped me to more obedient to the Lord and to my vocation as a priest. To the Lord Jesus, to Bishop DiMarzio and to all I you I give thanks and assure you of my continued prayers. May the Lord bless you abundantly in grace, peace, and love.

The Mass intention at Saint Peter’s  Basilica in Rome is for the parishioners of Sacred Heart.

Merci et paix.   

Fr Bryan Patterson
