Farewell for Father Flanagan

As you know by now, Father Flanagan is expecting a new assignment on the end of the month.  We’ll all be sorry to see Father Flanagan leave St. Bridget’s as I know the Roman High School  community is.   He certainly has made a good impression here at St. Bridget’s, and he’s served at Roman with distinction.  
Father Flanagan will be with us until the last day in June.  We have a farewell scheduled for the 11 AM Mass on Sunday, June 29 with a social afterwards.  Please plan on attending this Mass and to being with us after to say “Thank you and God’s speed” to Father Flanagan.
