Fay for his generous service in this ministry during the past number of months. Please join us in congratulating Deacon Connelly on his appointment and for his committed and prayerful ministry to the people of God. Following is the formal announcement.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Most Rev. Peter J. Uglietto, S.T.D.
