Wow, what a joy it has been to spend so many years in a career I have loved, that of gathering and supporting Small Church Communities. What a privilege it has been to meet so many wonderful people, to hear your stories, to witness your faith, to celebrate, to laugh and to cry with you. Throughout those years it has been a blessing to serve with dozens of committed and talented people on the SCC Core Team. We have shared faith and worked hard to support the vision and the experience of SCCs at Spirit of Christ. My own small community of forty+ years, has so decreased in membership that we are unable to continue to meet. Many members have moved, some to heaven and others to closer places, but still far away! The dedicated pastoral staff at Spirit of Christ, both past and present, has been an ongoing support to me and to Small Church Ccommunities. I am so thankful to the staff, the women and men who serve in both non-ordained and ordained ministries. Their constant goal is to help deepen Spirit of Christ Catholic Community's mission to make Jesus ever more present in our lives and in our world.
The time has come for me to retire and to explore what the future holds. But, before I leave the SCC Coordinator position on October 1st, there will be one more SCC gathering at which I hope to see lots of you!!! Please see below. . .
