Letter From Fr. Summers

TO ALL ST. PETER PARISHIONERS,

BISHOP BRENNAN HAS APPOINTED ME TO SERVE AS THE NEXT PASTOR OF ST. AGATHA PARISH IN UPPER ARLINGTON.  THE BISHOP HAS NOT YET APPOINTED MY SUCCESSOR HERE AT ST. PETER; HE HAS ADVERTISED IT AT 4:00PM TODAY (APRIL 17TH) AS OPEN AND AVAILABLE FOR APPLICATION.  HOWEVER IT WILL MATERIALIZE, YOU WILL HAVE A NEW PASTOR YOURSELVES “AT THE TURN.”

SEVEN YEARS AGO,  BISHOP CAMPBELL APPOINTED ME AS YOUR PASTOR AT ST. PETER.  I HAD NOT APPLIED FOR THAT THEN, AND I DID NOT APPLY FOR ST. AGATHA NOW.  WE ALL SERVE WHERE AND WHEN THE BISHOP NEEDS US, AND WE ARE HAPPY TO DO SO. 

ALL ASSIGNMENT CHANGES WILL LIKELY BEGIN AT THE NORMAL TIME IN JULY.  HOWEVER, THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY THAT PRIESTS WILL MOVE AT SOME OTHER TIME, GIVEN THE CORONA-VIRUS UNKNOWNS THAT ALL OF US IN THE GREAT STATE OF OHIO ARE DEALING WITH NOW.  I WILL LET YOU KNOW IF THE MOVES WILL START AT OTHER THAN THE NORMAL, EARLY JULY DATE.

YOU ARE ALL IN MY DAILY PRAYERS.  PLEASE REMEMBER ME IN YOUR PRAYERS FROM TIME TI TIME.

WITH LOVE IN CHRIST,

FATHER MARK S. SUMMERS

PASTOR, ST. PETER ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH                                                  

HIS HEART, HIS HOME.
