Fr. Ahern wishes to express his sincere thanks to Fr. Dever for his gracious welcome, and to all the parishioners for making him feel so at home on his first visit back. He said he is delighted to see how smoothly the transition is taking place, ‘a tribute to everyone.’ He asks for your prayers and promises to keep his friends of ‘St. Mary’s’ always at the forefront of his.
