Letter from Father Dan - Pastor of Saint Mary Church (the Announcement)

I am happy to announce to you that Bishop Lennon has appointed me as pastor of St. Mary Church in Bedford, Ohio. I can't put into words how excited I am to have the opportunity to serve there and be part of the process of reopening and rebuilding. I absolutely love the area. When I was ordained Fr Jack Storey was pastor there and he was my confessor. In that rectory I found a lot of healing and good advice. I hope to provide the same for many. It will be a joy to have the opportunity to serve the Bedford community.

I will go to St Mary's on July 16th and I plan to have the first Mass shortly after. I will know more after I consult with the awesome parishioners who made the appeal and have held together the community. I can't wait to meet them, to celebrate their joy and to hear their dreams for the future. I will do all in my power to make those dreams come true. I will be in touch with you shortly.

In the meantime save the date of August 5th for Scattered Seed which will take place (surprize, surprize) at St. Mary's Church in Bedford. As usual 5:30 music, 6:00 Mass and social afterwards. The Church is right on the corner of Northfield and Union.

My new address will be 300 Union Street, Bedford, Ohio 44146-4594, ..... but not till after July 16th. Keep us in your prayers!
