Fare Thee Well, Fr. Bertino!

I just returned from St. Bridget Church in Hobart.  This evening, they had a farewell dinner for Fr. Dominic Bertino.  He has been the pastor there for twenty-seven years and is retiring.  As a matter of fact, today was his very last day.  Tomorrow, July 1st, begins a new fiscal year and the first day of his retirement.

He has a lot of boxes to unpack in his home.  He will be lucky if he gets everything done in time to put up a Christmas tree this year!

Thank you, Fr. Bertino, for all that you have done for the Diocese of Gary in general and for St. Bridget in particular.
