“To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood, who has made us into a kingdom, priests for his God and Father, to him be glory and power forever [and ever]. Amen.”
Revelation 1:5-6

Father Jerry Tully, C.S.P.

Dear Parishioners,

I wish I could acknowledge each and every one of you in a more personal manner. But I do want to say “Thanks!” for celebrating my ordination anniversary, as well as my birthday! Your words and remembrances were quite touching and supportive. Despite being here less than a year, you have made me feel like a longtime member of our parish family. So I find myself being mindful of my many blessings and renewed in that “Yes” I voiced 30 years ago to the bishop before he imposed his hands on my head. Be assured you will always be in my ongoing prayers!
