Letter: Thanks for memories

July 16, 2014 

On Aug. 25, 1979, I was ordained a priest for the Catholic Diocese of Spokane. My first year as a priest was spent at St. Patrick's in Pasco, where I ministered to people in Eltopia and Connell as well as to the people in Pasco.

As I celebrate my 35th anniversary, I ask all the people of he Tri-City area to keep me in their prayers. Though I now minister as a priest in the Diocese of Santa Rosa, I will never forget my good friends in the the Mid-Columbia.
