Dear ICC family,
I’m so happy to be here! Just four years ago I got ordained and now I have the privilege of being part of your parish community. So many of my parishioners at St. Aidan’s in Williston Park (out West!) have told me how much they love Westhampton Beach and Immaculate Conception Church. Several have homes out here and so I will see some familiar faces.
As you may have read, I grew up as a Southern Baptist in South Carolina. And so while I may not be a great theologian and liturgist, I was nevertheless brought up with a love of Christ and people. A sense of community was paramount in my small church and that’s something I hope to foster here. Most Catholics tend to rush home after church. We used to have potluck dinners every month! People would each bring one dish and we would end up with 40-50 dishes to choose from. It was a real feast!
Let me know what you think!

May God bless us all as we embark on this journey together!
