MESSAGE from FATHER ANDREW:

"To the many folks that helped in any way with my Retirement Party after Mass on July 22nd THANK YOU! The planning, organizing, decorating, the set-up and clean-up, and the wonderful food supplied all made it an exceptional celebration! Many thanks to all who participated in the 'Retirement Journeys Campaign,' and to the many others who also donated towards these journeys in cards and envelopes at the party. Your kindness is much appreciated!

The Book of Remembrance, the cards and letters with heartfelt messages of love and friendship, and all the wonderful pictures of the event will provide cherished memories of my years at St. Mary's in Cochrane GOD BLESS YOU ALL!
