Dear People of St. John Brebeuf – St. Peters,
As of June 30th, 2021 I will be retired and live-in residence at St. Joseph’s Church in Guelph. I hope to be of assistance to Father Bergma who has been generous enough to take me in.
Father Gordian Okpuruta will be my replacement. He is a fine man; a good priest and I am sure you will welcome him as you did me.
I have more to say especially in terms of thanks, I will save that for later. I sure hope that I will be able to celebrate First Eucharist and Confirmation with our youth. Let us hope and pray that current restrictions ease off. I will also contact our couples to be married to assure them all will be in order for their blessed day.
As I said above, I will hold off special words of appreciation for later. You have all been so kind to me.
Father Don Sanvido
