I want to announce the transfer of our associate pastor, Father Jasper to a new assignment effective June 28, 2023. While we are saddened by the news of Fr. Jasper's departure, we must celebrate the fact that Fr. Jasper has been called to a position of leadership by our bishop. Father Jasper will serve as the Administrator of Immaculate Conception Parish in Elkton, MD along with the parish mission church of St. Jude in Northeast, MD. Those priests chosen for leadership are appointed parish administrators for the first year before being appointed pastor. Father Jasper's empathy, personality, availability, listening, along with his teaching experience and ministry to the sick and dying make him more than qualified to take on the responsibilities of a pastor.
