Farewell receptions to be held for Fr. Bill on June 27 and 28

Fr. Bill announced last September that his duties here at St. Thomas More will conclude as of June 30th. On July 1st, he will start his new assignment as spiritual director at Borromeo Seminary.

Fr. Bill will celebrate his last Mass as the pastor of St. Thomas the weekend of June 27th & 28th. The 11am Mass will resume that Sunday.

We cannot let Father go without a thank you for all that he has done for our parish. There are two options for you to come and say goodbye. We will have a light reception on Saturday, June 27th immediately following the 4:30 Mass. Then we will do the same on Sunday, June 28th immediately following the 11am Mass.

The reception will be held in the parking lot with signage and staff present to help direct the crowd and flow of refreshments. We are asking that parishioners please only attend one of these receptions. We are looking out for everyone’s safety and need to be cautious with our number of guests and social distancing due to the guidelines set by the State of Ohio.

While this is definitely not the party that we had planned for Fr. Bill, however, it is the best we can do under the circumstances.

So mark your calendars for either Saturday, June 27 or Sunday, June 28 and come out to thank Fr. Bill.
