Happy Retirement, Dale!
Dale’s ‘Farewell and Retirement’ will be celebrated this coming weekend, January 3/4, 2015 and will include a reception after Saturday 5:00 p.m. and Sunday 9:00 & 11:00 a.m. Masses.
"It is with a mixture of emotions: excitement, a sense of adventure, some doubt and fear, and a whole lot of gratitude for you, the Risen Savior Community, I am announcing that, after 35 years in active ministry, I am retiring.
I will be leaving Risen Savior on December 31, 2014. I have grown to love this community and I will deeply miss you all. In the 10 years that I have been here, there have been many changes, both locally and in the universal Church, but I always felt that I received more from you than I have ever been able to give back to you.
My retirement years will be spent getting back to the things I love: writing and recording music, and trying my hand at writing prayers, poetry, and maybe even a short story or two. I also plan on some free-lance work at various churches that may need a substitute cantor. There will be plenty of fun and rest included in this plan.
My farewell to you is this: May you always be blessed with success as a Faith Community, and may you all be held in the hand of God."
Peace, Love, Joy, and Hope,
