Fr. Greg - Family Update


Updates on Fr. Greg from Fr. Greg and his Family.

Thursday, September 22: UPDATE

Hi Parishioners & Friends!

 This will be my last "Statement" for quite a while I anticipate. My treatment has gone well. I will be flying home into Bloomington on September 27. It's now time for me to regain my normal routine of parish ministry and get things back to normal again. Bishop Jenky verbally stated to me that as of noon on September 27, the Administrator of St Patrick of Merna Parish and St Mary's in Downs (Fr Dustin Schultz) has been relieved of duty. I am VERY GRATEFUL to Fr Dustin Schultz! He has done an outstanding job and now will have even further time to give to his assignments of St Patrick in Wapella and Central Catholic High School.  I very much look forward to his friendship and working with him at Central Catholic High School. I also want to recognize the pastoral work in my absence of our outstanding parochial vicar Fr Michael Pica and our wonderful Staffs at Merna and Downs. They are hard working and touch the lives of our Parish Family Parish and beyond each day. Please be aware of my need to ease into my normal routine. This will take a little time, but I am SO EXCITED to be coming home and be with all of you! Many of you have donated toward my ongoing treatment. I am grateful for your love! I will need to travel to Houston every 2 months for a couple of days to have an MRI and speak with my physician at MD Anderson. I continue to advocate that only Jesus is the true Divine Physician and He alone Reigns!!!

God Bless,

Fr Greg
