For the past three weeks my name and decision have registered mild shock waves in SLDM Parish. Believe me…my decision was not made lightly. Approximately thirty years ago I fell in love with the people of Santa Maria and that feeling still holds.
However, when Sr. Regine died in September, I lost a soul mate. Also I feel the need of being in closer touch with my DMJ Sisters, living in the LA area.
So, I am going to join my Sisters in Palos Verdes at the end June…not to retire, but to transition. I know I will find opportunities to minister at a slower pace.
I am most grateful for all the expression of love and support since the news broke!
I am holding all of you in my thoughts and prayers.
