My sisters and brothers in the Diocese of New Jersey, grace to you and peace, from God our Creator, and Jesus Christ, our blessed Savior. I pray that you all are doing well, as you continue to navigate the coronavirus pandemic, with its uncertainties, and variations that are plaguing the universe, and causing such grave anxiety among humankind. Indeed, we are living in continuously challenges times.

You may be aware that I have been on medical leave for the past three months. Please know that I am actively working on my recovery and undertaking the steps necessary to be healthy again, so that I may be able to return to work. Allow me the opportunity to express my deepest gratitude to our Bishop and Diocesan Staff for their love and support during my time of illness.

Additionally, I thank you for your prayers, kind thoughts, and words of encouragement during this difficult period for my family and me.
