Dear Members and Friends: June 29th will be my last day as Pastor of Sacred Heart Parish. Archbishop Blair has assigned me as Pastor of Saint Catherine Parish in Broad Brook and Saint Philip Parish in Warehouse Point. These two parishes have been merged into one new parish called Saint Marianne Cope Parish. The new parish will continue two use both churches. This was something I neither sought nor expected. I am still trying to understand the logic behind this transfer. Your new Pastor will be the Reverend Mark Jette. He was ordained in 1972 and is currently Pastor of Saint Lawrence Parish and Saint Paul Parish, both in West Haven. Additionally, a second priest is slated to come here as Senior Assistant Pastor. The Reverend Thomas Hicky is currently Pastor of Saint Stephen Parish in Hamden. He was ordained in 2010 after having been a Protestant minister for some years. I will do my best to brief your new priests and prepare parish staff and leadership between now and June 29. I know that you will give Fathers Jette and Hicky the same warm welcome you gave me ten years ago. Father DeVito
