This is an open letter to the people of Sacred Heart Church (Emmanus Parish), and Most Holy Maternity, Mt. Ephraim.
Dear friends it has been a blessing and my profound joy to have been your leader of song for these 20 or more years. Matt and I love our parish and have always given the best of ourselves to sustain it. So it is with a heavy heart I write this letter. Unfortunately, due to the current management, things have changed. I no longer feel welcome at my beloved church. I’m sure you’ve noticed, but one by one our family has been diminishing.
If you want to save our parish then please write a letter to Bishop Galanti and send a copy to his superior Archbishop John J. Meyer. I’m not sure your letter will make a difference, but we need help before it is too late.
I have provided the addresses. In the meantime, I will keep all of you in my prayers and hope that soon, once again, I will be leading you in song. I feel as thought I’ve lost my home, my heart is truly broken!
