Sacred Heart Welcomes Father Alexander Gabriel

From the new Pastor to all members of the Parish,

Friends, I am writing to tell you that I have been looking forward to do my priestly ministry in your parish as a new Pastor. I would like to work with you hand in hand to build up the Kingdom of God in Sacred Heart Church. I do count on your generous support and cooperation as you have given to Msgr. Donald W. Lammers. On June 9, when I visited with him, I heard him saying, “Sacred Heart, Eldon is a good parish with a people of good heart.” It is indeed a wonderful compliment given to you by a renowned Pastor. I do appreciate it. He also talked to me about the proposed church remodeling project and his willingness to render his service toward implementing it. I did appreciate his big heart for Eldon and welcome his thoughtful gesture of support. Now, on behalf of the Parish, I extend him my sincere thanks and appreciation for what he has been to you and the parish during his seven years of ministry. I wish him well and God’s choicest blessings upon his retired life at the Cathedral Parish in JC. With blessings, Fr. Alex Gabriel
