“Thank You” I have to be careful when priests visit the rectory at this time of the year because they become rather jealous of the generosity of the people of Christ the King and St. John’s. From homemade baked goods to thoughtful cards, from remembrances in Masses to monetary gifts, you are the best parishes I’ve ever served as pastor. I realize someone will point out that you’re the only parishes I’ve ever served as pastor, but the point still stands! Father Kuhn and I pray for you and your intentions everyday and we work hard to serve you to the best of our ability. Your prayers for us are your greatest gift because they make clear your love for God and for us. Thank you for all you do for Father Kuhn and me. More importantly, thank you for your deep faith in Our Lord and for loving and serving Him so sincerely. May God bless and reward you for making Father Kuhn and me feel so welcomed in Marshfield and Spencer!
Your friend in Christ, Father Martin
