"Patty and I would like to express our sincere gratitude for all of your prayers, love, and support for us through the years. It has been a privilege and honor to serve and be part of this faithful, devout, and nurturing community. I especially want to thank Fr. Ed for his support in my diaconal vocation.
"We have recently moved to the northern Dallas area of Texas, and I have taken on a position as Director of Religious Education at St. Martin de Porres Catholic Church in Prosper, Texas.
"Decisions such as these are never easy to make, but with much prayer we move forward open to what God has planned for us. My wife, Patty, particularly wants to express to all of those she has ministered to in the nursing homes that she will miss you most dearly, and it has been a privilege to know and love you, and that she sees Christ in all of you. God bless you!"
"I will especially miss the faculty, staff, students and parents of St. Michael Catholic School. I have enjoyed teaching religion to the middle school students and will continue teaching them from a "distance" for the remainder of the school year. May God bless all of you!"
Deacon Andy, Patty, Sara, Lisa, Monica, and Benny
