To Our Pastor
You have served the Lord with gladness
tirelessly, faithfully and with great
compassion for His flock. In wisdom you
have instructed us, and in gentleness
you have led us. Your counsel has made us
wise, and your tender compassion have
encouraged and comforted us.
You have been to us the express
representation of the Father’s Love.
You have shared our deepest joys and
stood with us in our darkest hours.
You have held us close to your heart,
strengthening our hands, cheering our
souls and assuring our hearts.
To Our First Lady
You shine forth in our midst, a radiant
reflection of God’s love, continually
holding forth the Word of Truth.
With discernment and devotion you have
listened to the Father’s voice and have
called us, again and again, to His heart.
You have taught us what it means
to commit wholeheartedly, to serve
zealously, and to love sacrificially.
In purity and passion you have set
our hearts ablaze with love for our Savior,
a hunger for His Word, and a consuming
desire for a life of holy consecration.
In Sincere and Humble Gratitude for Many Years of Faithfully, Compassionately, and Lovingly Shepherding the Flock
