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.
We have had many special events and days since the last news letter. Please click to links to view albums.
