Marilyn
Friends, I have been very happy and privileged to work here at IHM for the past seventeen years, but just as all good things must pass, I feel it is time to leave. Please know that New Melle has been a true blessing in my life, and that I loved working with the choirs and cantors. I plan to keep in touch with my friends here, and there are many, and will see you at Mass, study groups, quilting, and elsewhere. Thank you for your many kindnesses and love through the years. God bless you. Love always, Marilyn Marilyn will be with us through Pentecost, June 9
