A message from Donna Tomasini
Dear parishioners and friends of Saint Peter's,
For the past thirty-five years I have been involved in Faith Formation Ministry, sixteen of those years as Director of Faith Formation for the Basilica of Saint Peter. This time has been extremely rewarding to me both personally and professionally, for not only have you allowed me the opportunity to serve you in ministry, including me in family celebrations; you have shared the many joys and sorrows in my own life. However, in this season of life God is calling me to step away from full time ministry. I informed Father Linsky in July that I would be retiring as Director of Faith Formation at the end of this calendar year.
This is a bittersweet time for me because I love this parish and you, the parishioners who have impacted my faith and life in unfathomable ways. Yet, this is also an exciting time as I look forward to now spending time with family and friends, and most specially to respond to God’s call to focus more fully on the ministry of Spiritual Direction. Change is always exciting and challenging. God graces each of us with faith and assurance that the Holy Spirit will guide us as we move forward.
Thank you for all your support throughout these many years, for allowing me to be a part of your faith life and the lives of your children. You will always hold a special place in my heart and my prayers.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Director of Faith Formation
