FAREWELL TREVOR TIBBERTSMA

We say farewell once again to Trevor who leaves for Rome next Friday. On September 29 Trevor will be ordained to the Diaconate at St Peter’s Basilica.  We wish him well as he commences the last stage of his preparations for the priesthood. Please keep him in your prayers.   And from Trevor:

Thanks everyone for having me again! It's gone so fast but I'm glad to have been with you. I will pray for you in Rome as I continue my studies in Sacred Scripture.
