Thank You!!

10-01-2017Rev. Kenneth Brighenti

Dear Parishioners,

I would like to thank all who have made my Installation as Pastor a truly wonderful event. First, my thanks go to Almighty God, who never ceases to amaze me in my vocation as priest. In the past 29 years of my priesthood He has led me to many different apostolates and duties. Second, I would like to thank his Excellency, Bishop James Chechio for taking time out of his busy schedule and my brother priests who came to celebrate the installation. Third, thanks go to my mother and sister and family who drove from Connecticut to be here. They were quite impressed with the parish and parishioners of St. Magdalen. Next, I would like to thank the staff of St. Magdalen's, the music ministry, office staff, gardening and flower arranging volunteers. Everyone coming together was a true blessing. Finally, I would like to thank all of you for being so welcoming to me over the past three months. Truly, I feel right at home with the good people of St. Magdalen. May God be praised and I look forward to serving you as your pastor. Please continue to keep me in your prayers.

Reverend Kenneth D. Brighenti
