We thank you, Deacon Roger, for everything including your corny jokes and seasonal ties, but especially for your kindness, your thoughtful homilies and your ministries that have been a blessing to all of us throughout these years. In his retirement, Deacon Roger will have more time to spend with his family. To our delight, he will still serve as a Deacon at Mass when he is able and he will still baptize and bury. Congratulations, Deacon Roger! Best wishes in the years ahead!!

After the 4PM Mass on Saturday, November 11th, there will be a reception in the Bell Tower to celebrate Deacon Roger’s Retirement from active ministry and to thank him for his years of service here at St. John Bosco.
