Our Former Parish Pastors

O God, who have willed that I preside over your family not by any merit of mine but out of the abundance of your untold grace along, grant that I may carry out worthily the ministry of the priestly office and, under your governance in all things, may direct the people entrusted to my care. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.  Amen.

– Prayer for the Pastor Himself
