Dear people of Saint Anne,
After celebrating my 25th Anniversary of Ordination immediately I went to Holy Land on a pilgrimage. During the pilgrimage I kept thinking each day about your love, support and kindness. I prayed for you and our community as we celebrated masses at some the most holiest places.
I thank you sincerely for your presence and prayers during my Anniversary mass. I also acknowledge the prayers of many who could not be there due to family commitments, graduations and even prom.
Indeed it was a beautiful celebration of love, joy and community. I was overwhelmed by the number of people joined for the mass and reception. I will never forget the gratitude and happiness I experienced that day. I am truly blessed to be here among you to serve. Please keep me in your prayer so that I continue to serve for another 25 and more years as a priest.
I am forever grateful.
Fr. Joji Thanugundla
