King Solomon made a profound statement in Ecclesiastics 3: 1 that there’s a season and a time for every purpose under heaven.
It is therefore time for our Priest Fr Saji to move on. He has been assigned as Parish Priest to St. Peters Church in Cardiff. We will all miss him terribly. We express our gratitude to him for his service as priest and for his friendship. His emphasis on prayer and praise and worship have been a great service to all the parishioners especially when we have experienced difficult times.
Fr Saji has achieved so much in the 3 years 33 days that he has been with us. His biggest achievement was overseeing the huge renovation of Sacred Heart Church and as well St Theresa’s has had a bit of a makeover with new carpets, cupboards, heating sorted and so many other things. There are now well organised groups that keep the Church in good order and the administration is in first class order.
Fr Saji also been a great support to Bishop Ellis Catholic School and English Martyrs Secondary Academy.
On 6th October a farewell party was held after Mass. Gordon presented Father with a card and gift and ‘For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow’ raised the roof. As well as the wonderful spread of food there was an amazing cake made by Jenny.
Father Saji we will all miss you and your amazing smile, and we wish you well in your new post. We will pray for you and hope you will always remember us always and pray for us too.
