Orlando Vera Bids Farewell as St. Francis’ Director of Music Ministry

I would like to share with you, the loving parish of St. Francis of Assisi, that I will be moving to the North Texas area in April. As such, my brief time with you will be coming to an end this Divine Mercy Sunday. I cannot thank you enough for the many blessings that have been bestowed upon me here at St. Francis of Assisi. Although my tenure as music director has been short, I have grown to love you all deeply and have loved every minute of my ministry work. In addition to all the wonderful daily little things, the spiritual, musical, and community experiences you have given me will be carried in my heart always. The sadness of leaving this parish is easily overcome by the joy you have filled my heart with. I hope, in some small way, that I have shared something special with you. I pray for God’s continued blessings upon you and wish you peace, love, and joy.
