Deacon Brian J. Kelly’s farewell message to Saint Luke Faith Community
Dear parishioners of Saint Luke, I want to thank you for being attentive to the things I’ve said in the pulpit and sometimes in classes. I don’t know what the right way is, but I know we need to keep searching for the right way to live. So, I would encourage you to keep searching because there is no right one way.
I think it was during my most recent heart episode, I had a vision of a strange little man who asked me if I was happy and content and he disappeared laughing and said, “I am too because I also search for ways to serve Christ. That effort is all that is necessary.
And I simply ask you to remember the deacon who came along and tried to show you ways to seek God in your lives.
God bless and thank you.
You encouraged me without knowing to keep searching and hopefully I encouraged you to serve God.
Deacon Brian Kelly
