Thank you all for your prayers during my absence from OLR due to Covid. I did not plan to be away from Our Lady of Refuge this long, but my recovery efforts took a wrong turn on Day 10, when I could barely move 10 feet and when my oxygen levels dropped so low that I was almost taken to the hospital. Fortunately, an ER doctor friend of mine has been treating me and is helping me recover. Praise God for the gift of medicine and for the healers involved in this noble profession!
I also wish to inform you that I will be leaving my position here at Our Lady of Refuge to accept the Director of Sacred Music position at the Diocese of Lansing Cathedral. My last day here will be Friday, January 21. While the timing due to my Covid illness is less than ideal and I wish that I could be with you all during my last weekend here at Our Lady of Refuge, I firmly believe that God placed me here at this parish for a specific reason and I am so grateful to Him that He did so. I have truly enjoyed getting to know all of you and to serve you, and I pray that you continue to grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ. Please know of my prayers for all of you.
