Event description
Parish BBQ to honour Monsignor Jim's Retirement after 48 years as a priest and 20 years as Pastor of Our Lady of Perpetual Help

About this event

After 20 years as our Pastor and 48 years as a Priest, Msgr. Jim Hannah is retiring this June. He has touched so many of our lives. We want to celebrate Msgr. Jim and show him how much we appreciate his years of loving, faithful service as our Pastor by holding a special party for him and collaborating to provide him two once-in-a-lifetime gifts.

The party will be a special Parish BBQ occurring on Sunday June 12th, after the 11:00 am Mass. At approximately 1:45 pm the event will culminate with a cake, a toast to Msgr. Jim and the presentation of his two gifts. We invite all parishioners to join us at this important event. Please RSVP to this invitation so that we can ensure we have enough food & drink to celebrate together. Please keep your eyes open for notices about how you can help.

We need your assistance to create two extraordinary gifts to let Msgr. Jim know how much we appreciate his work as our Pastor, his guidance as our spiritual leader, his impact as a homilist, his strength as a person of faith, and his compassion in pastoral care.

The first gift is a spiritual one in recognition of his service to our faith community and our individual spiritual journeys. Please join us in creating a 'Spiritual Bouquet' for Msgr. Jim. The bouquet is composed of prayers or acts of charity that individuals commit to for someone. Each prayer is a spiritual flower; when gathered together, they are a "bouquet" of prayers. Your name and devotional act will be included in a card that will be presented at the BBQ. To participate simply send an email to olphtoronto@archtoronto.org with your name and the devotional act you will commit in prayer for Msgr. Jim. For ideas see the next page of this letter.

The second gift is a material one. He has taken care of us for so many years. We now want to take care of him by providing a collective gift to assist him in retirement. Privacy concerns don’t allow us to tell you about this collective gift here. If you would like to participate in this collective gift please click here to learn more about how you can participate or email us at friendsofRJH@gmail.com.

Please provide your RSVP to the party, and your contributions to the gifts by Thursday June 5th.

Please share this information with others who the Monsignor may have touched through the years and who would want to wish him well in his retirement. Please note: the party is not a secret; the presents are a secret!!… so…don’t tell Msgr. about the presents!!

We hope to see you on June 12th to wish Msgr. Jim well on his retirement.

With gratitude,

OLPH - Pastoral & Finance Committees
