A Letter from Priest Angela


The last few weeks have been a complete blur of either driving long days or unpacking boxes. I’ve survived driving through my first snowstorm (a mild one!) and temperatures in the single digits! The earrings you gave me traveled with me and were proudly displayed in New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina, New Hampshire, Vermont, New Jersey and Washington DC – YES I have been through all those places and the earrings accompanied me!

The most fun part of this adventure so far was opening the moving boxes that contained the many gifts of jewelry, throws and scarves, books and all the other wonderful items from friends at St. Michael’s. I have yet to be able to slow down enough to enjoy them all but that will happen soon.

Thank you all for your generosity. Your gift certificate for warm clothes is greatly appreciated! You remain in my thoughts and prayers.
