My Sisters and Brothers in Christ,
Grace and Peace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Today I have joyous news to share with you about one of our beloved priests, Very Reverend Stephen Parkes. Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, has found him worthy of an ecclesiastical appointment to Bishop of the Diocese of Savannah and has made this announcement today. Bishop Elect Parkes will be travelling to and from the Diocese of Savannah while continuing to serve as pastor of Annunciation Catholic Church until September 23 when he will be ordained and installed as Bishop of the Diocese of Savannah.
We send out our prayers and congratulations as your parish family! We have been blessed by your years with us and know that the Diocese of Savannah will be well served by your pastoral heart and leadership. May God bless and keep you!
