From the Pastor’s Desk – Thank you, Fr. Kenan!

Next weekend Fr. Kenan Freson, OFM, will be celebrating the 5:00PM vigil Mass at St. Bartholomew and the 9:30AM Mass at St. Vivian Parish. This will be the last weekend that Fr. Kenan presides at Mass with us. Fr. Kenan has been helping out at our parishes for over 35 years. He will be a Franciscan for 64 years in July. He has become a beloved character here at our parishes, a gentle soul in the spirit of St. Francis. We wish him well in his well-deserved retirement. We invite you to express your thanks and well wishes to him after the 5:00PM Mass in the narthex at St. Bart and the 9:30AM Mass in the gather rooms at St. Vivian.

-Fr. Umberg
