Farewell, Fr. Richard

Dear ICC Family,

Fr. Richard has informed me that he will be leaving Immaculate Conception Parish on Tuesday, December 12. He will be moving to Mattituck to live with Fr. Mike Bartholomew.

As you may recall, Fr. Mike invited Fr. Richard to live with him here in the rectory four years ago and has served this parish faithfully since then. He will now live and serve with Fr. Mike again, this time at Our Lady of Good Counsel. Fr. Mike can use the extra help at Good Counsel!

Please help me to wish Fr. Richard much luck in his new home and many blessings on his work there at Good Counsel!

We, here at Immaculate Conception Parish, are fortunate to have two other retired priests helping us out at Immaculate Conception: Fr Michael Flynn and Fr. Peter Garry. We are also grateful to these priests for their good work.

Fr. Richard Hoerning

As per his wishes, Fr. Richard will not have a farewell Mass or reception. His last Mass here will be Sunday, December 10th at 8:00am. If you would like to send a greeting card to Fr. Richard, please mail it to:
