Dear Parishioners of Our Lady of Hope,
Today Bishop Burbidge announced the assignment of Father Nicholas Schierer to Saint Rita Parish effective October 15th. The reassignment of priests is never easy. This has been Father’s first assignment as a priest, and he has helped guide many groups and activities in our parish. We will have the opportunity to express our gratitude to him at a reception following the 12:15 p.m. Mass on Sunday, October 11th.
We welcome Father Jordan Willard to Our Lady of Hope on October 15th. Father has served at both St. Theresa Parish in Ashburn and at St. Raymond Parish in Springfield. Please introduce yourself to Father Willard as he settles into the parish.
Please keep both priests in your prayers in this time of transition.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
