Farewell for Fr. David

 

Come to the Cathedral Thursday, July 19th for an evening of music, laughter and fun as we wish Fr. David farewell. The night will start at 7:00 pm and will include musical performances and a brief program, followed by a casual reception (with cash bar). Let us join together in celebrating our pastor who has served us faithfully for 12 years. All are invited and welcome to attend.

Have a card for Fr. David, but can’t make it to the farewell? Drop it in the special box at the concierge desk on Sundays or the parish office during the week.
