Yesterday afternoon the Reverend Monsignor Carl A. Kemme, Diocesan Administrator, asked me to take on a new assignment, which I accepted.
Effective July 1, 2010, I am to be Pastor of Holy Cross Parish in Auburn, Illinois, while remaining Pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Virden and of St. Patrick Parish in Girard.
This additional assignment will also mean that I will be moving to Auburn.
My cell phone and e-mail will remain the same as they are now; if you would like the postal address, just let me know.
Please keep me in your prayers. There is much to be done in the next few weeks, not the least of which will be a new Mass schedule for the three parishes and four churches.
