…as ’twere with a defeated joy,
With an auspicious and a dropping eye,
With mirth in funeral and with dirge in marriage,
In equal scale weighing delight and dole (Hamlet I.ii)

Thus do we priests greet a change of pastoral assignment.

On August 1, soon-to-be-Father Nick Mammi will become the pastor of the Rocky Mount and Martinsville, Virginia. A great blessing for the people.

Maybe a co-incidence that my tenure ends just as David Letterman’s does. “The four-year parochial nightmare for St. Francis of Assisi and St. Joseph is now over.”

…I will become the pastor of St. Andrew parish in Roanoke. Also Administrator of St. Gerard parish.

Bishop has assigned me an excellent curate, soon-to-be Father Matt Kiehl. Father will assume the role of chaplain at Roanoke Catholic School.

…Can’t believe I have to leave my beloved home of Franklin/Henry County. Can’t wait to serve God in Roanoke…

May God be praised and blessed and adored for His goodness!
And may He console us sorrowful ones.

  1. Many blessings on your new adventure. May it be grace-filled!

    Happy Anniversary, dear Padre!

  2. I know your parish family will miss you. I still miss you from your time at St. Mary of the Assumption. Congratulations though as you move on to your next assignment may you be blessed, may God make straight your path and give success to all your endeavors . God’s speed!

  3. Dear Fr. Mark,

    How kind of you to send all the info pertaining to the new assignment. You are so amazing in the way you are handling all of these upcoming changes. The Holy Spirit has a way with you and it shows. May the rest of us take note and follow suit. This is truly a bittersweet time. To focus on the positive, these past four years with you have meant more to me than you could possibly know, and I can’t thank God enough for allowing our paths to cross. And I’m just one of many who feels this way. We have been so blessed to have you in our midst, and as much as we’d love for you remain here, we know God has other plans for you. You ultimately answered His call on May 24, 2003, and He is doing great things through you. Keep up the good work. You have literally left a ‘Mark’ upon our hearts and we will never forget you!

    Love and prayers, Sandy

    PS Sorry the mention of your 12th anniversary celebration and congratulations got lost in the shuffle on Sun. 😦 It was truly unintended. Loved the Don Henley style of announcing your new assignment:)
