Farewell to our Pastor Father Colin

Farewell Father Colin

It is with a heart full of mixed emotions that we bid farewell to our dear Pastor Father Colin, who has been not just a shepherd to our flock but also a light in our community since his ordination in 2017 and his subsequent assignment to St. Anne in 2019.

In the book of Ecclesiastes, it is said, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Today marks both an end and a beginning, an end to a cherished chapter in our parish life and the beginning of a new journey for our Pastor.


Over the years, we have been blessed by his unwavering faith, his compassionate heart, and his tireless service. He has walked with us through seasons of joy and seasons of trials, always guiding us with wisdom and love. His sermons have not only echoed through the walls of St. Anne but have resonated within our hearts, inspiring us to live out the Gospel in our daily lives.

As he moves on to serve another parish family, we are reminded that the work of the Lord knows no boundaries and that the seeds of faith he has planted here will continue to grow and flourish. We are confident that he will touch many more lives as he has touched ours.

Father Colin, as you embark on this new chapter, we want you to know that you will always be a part of our St. Anne family. You leave behind a legacy of faith, hope, and love—a legacy that will continue to inspire us.

We pray that God will bless you with strength, wisdom, and joy as you continue to spread His word and love. May His grace shine upon you, and may His peace be with you always.

With heartfelt gratitude and love,

Your St. Anne Parish
