DON’T GRIEVE FOR ME FOR NOW I’M FREE!
I FOLLOW THE PLAN GOD MADE FOR ME.
I SAW HIS FACE, I HEARD HIS CALL,
I TOOK HIS HAND AND LEFT IT ALL.
I COULD NOT STAY ANOTHER DAY,
TO LOVE, TO LAUGH, TO WORK OR PLAY;
TASKS LEFT UNDONE MUST STAY THAT WAY.
AND IF MY PARTING HAS LEFT A VOID,
THEN FULL IT WITH REMEMBERED JOY.
A FRIENDSHIP SHARED, A LAUGH, A KISS…AH YES,
THESE THINGS I, TOO SHALL MISS.
MY LIFE’S BEEN FULL, I’VE SAVOURED MUCH;
GOOD TIMES, GOOD FRIENDS, A LOVE-ONE’S TOUCH.
PERHAPS MY TIME SEEMED ALL TOO BRIEF-
DON’T SHORTEN YOURS WITH UNDUE GRIEF.
BE NOT BURDENED WITH TEARS OF SORROW,
ENJOY THE SUNSHINE OF THE MORROW.

It is with a heavy heart - but always hope in the lord - that we inform you Monsignor "Joe" Ferraro has passed to the gates of heaven after suffering from COVID-19. Msgr. Joe always had a wonderful way of weaving real-life events into his homilies that always touched your heart and gently made you reflect on how you were living your life.

           

V. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord.
R. And let the perpetual light shine upon him.

And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
