As many of you heard at Sunday Mass, the Bishop announced priest transfers last week, and sadly our own Father Michael Kelly is being transferred to St John the Apostle in Leesburg, with part-time studies at Divine Mercy University in Sterling.
As sad as we are to lose Father Kelly, who has served the people of St Mary tirelessly and with compassion and grace for the past 5 years, we are excited to welcome Father Phillip Cozzi from St John the Baptist in Front Royal.
More information on Father Kelly’s goodbye will be announced in the coming weeks. Please keep Father Kelly and Father Cozzi in your prayers!
