OUR PARISH MERGER

At our parish meeting for Church of the Visitation and St. Raymond's in May support was shown for the merger of our two parishes as the best option available to us as we face the future.  At its June meeting the Parish Pastoral Council of our parishes recommended unanimously in favor of initiating the formal process for the merger of the parishes.  Subsequently I wrote to Bishop LaValley recommending the change.  A response received this week indicated Bishop respects our process and intends to discuss the request with the Council of Priests at its September meeting.  A response will be forthcoming after that meeting.  Please continue to pray for the future of our two churches, that the Holy Spirit will guide the process in which we are searching to do what is best for the future of the Church.

Sincerely in Jesus the Lord,
Msgr. John R Murphy
Pastor
