The generations of Saint Joe faithful that have come before us have left us a great legacy. I feel that we have been blessed in many ways, and I give thanks to God. I pray that each of you, too, will see God’s glory in the work before us, be inspired by the underlying mission we seek to strengthen, and find within yourselves a desire to give in gratitude.
