From the Parish Priest – Fr. Romey Rosco
As you have accepted your diplomas, you will step into new relationships with your friends, your family and your community.┬á With your degrees, you have earned more than freedom; you have earned the right (and the responsibility) to prove that you can handle freedom responsibly; that you are trustworthy, dependable and mature enough to try your own wings.
The world is eager to test your true character with fire.┬á Remember that you are always fully accountable to God, who loves you and believes in you far beyond your own understanding.
Your parish assures you of our continued love, and we promise to remember you in our prayers.┬á We pledge to always be your “family.”┬á No matter where you are or in whatever circumstances you find yourself, we care about you and stand ready to rejoice in your accomplishments, to support you in your failures and, most importantly, to grow with you in faith.
