Dear Conrad,

I have been meaning to write for a long time now. I apologize for not getting to you earlier.

As of June 6th, 2011, I left St. Agnes and the reservation. My term was meant to be for three years, and this time ended in June of '11, as I arrived right after ordination in June of '08.

Presently, no priest has replaced me. We are hoping that one will arrive soon. In the meantime, Hope Villella, the interim Parish Life Coordinator, and, Joyce Tibbittts, the Parish Coordinator, will be handling all administrative activities. One or both of them will be contacting you soon, if they have not already. I forwarded this email from you to both of them.

I was sad to leave St. Agnes. We were really getting organized, and beginning to prioritize our needs within the parish. It was quite exciting, and I am sure that things will continue to improve.

I am grateful for all the help you and the Circle have given to the parish.

Although I left, I will always be connected with the people at St. Agnes. It was a great ministry and there is so much need there, and the people are so faith filled. I really miss it.

May God continue to bless you and the members of St. Agnes. If you need anything from me in the future just let me know.

Be assured of my prayers.

Blessings and peace,

fr. phil
