Thank you Father Gene for 15 years of faithful and dedicated service
you so willingly gave to St. Thomas More Church - also...
Congratulations on your 25th Anniversary of Priesthood in November!
May God continue to bless you in your new endeavor. You have touched the lives of so many. You will be forever remembered in our prayers.
Dear Parishioners and Friends,
It’s hard to believe that fifteen years here at St. Thomas More have passed so quickly for me.
And so, it is with a mixed sense of joy and sorrow that I leave you and take up residence in
St. Luke’s Parish in Ho-Ho-Kus with Fr. James Manos, your previous pastor. He was recently
informed that his parochial vicar, Fr. E. Ramirez would be transferred, but that there was no available replacement. Fr. James then
contacted me to ask if I would consider moving to St. Luke’s. I did so after much reflection and prayer, keeping uppermost in mind this question: How could I leave a brother priest alone without any assistance? So I look forward to serving the Lord with Fr. James
effective this June 30.
In doing so I am most grateful to Our Lord for the privilege of serving the People of God in
Fairfield and beyond these many years, for it has been a grace-filled experience that I will remember with joy the rest of my years. My thanks to Fr. Marek for his kindness and understanding, to Fr. Juan, Deacon Aidan and the Parish Staff. God bless you with His strength, joy and peace!
The Parish Family of St. Thomas More is tremendously grateful for Fr. Gene’s dedicated love, service and commitment he has shared with us over the past 15 years.
Please show your love and support by joining us in bidding Fr. Gene a farewell as he
celebrates the 12Noon Mass on June 28th. A light reception will follow in O’Connor Hall.
Walk along beside me, Jesus, as I begin the months of summer. As I work, play, enjoy family time and friendships, may I hear Your voice within me, guiding me toward all that is right and good. Give me faith in Your presence, knowing that you walk beside me in everything I do.
Gracious and loving Jesus, thank you for the gift of summer. May the warmth of its sun and the beauty of its light remind me daily of Your love for me. Amen.
