Father Thomas has been a blessing to Saint Thomas, he served our community faithfully for 3 years and his devotion provided comfort to many of us. He was active in celebrating the sacraments, including Mass for our parish senior citizens living at Morning Star Assisted Living Community, teaching our Senior Class program and volunteering to serve the homeless with Our Ladies of Sodality. Our school children loved visits from Father Thomas and he loved celebrating the weekly school Masses with them. Last year he even played in a corn hole tournament with our parents!
He has left for vacation and is sorry to not say goodbye personally but he wants to thank our community for "the assistance of everyone during histime at Saint Thomas".
Though we will miss him greatly, change always brings new blessings. We will soon be welcoming two new priests to our community and in the meantime, Fr. Jovi will be with us through August.
I would like to thank Father Thomas for answering the call to serve in new places whenever asked by God and for all of his service to Saint Thomas.
Fr. Steven Kunkel
