Very Reverend Richard J. Stoffel
“I enjoy being a priest wherever I am, wherever I have been, wherever I may yet be called to be: that said, I absolutely LOVE St. Peter’s, Resurrection, and St. Lawrence, as each one of them has such very delightful diversity of good people, all sharing the mission of trying together to do their best to honor God and serve one another in love – they are amazing, the three best Catholic parishes I know!”
