Father Steven’s Retirement Luncheon

26 Oct

thumb_IMG_8898_1024On Sunday, October 22, 2017, our parish community and friends gathered for an afternoon to celebrate Father Steven Belonick’s 39 years in the priesthood and his retirement as our pastor at Holy Ghost Church.

The celebration was held at Oronoque Country Club in Stratford. The afternoon held laughter and tears, as those close to Fr. Steven shared heartfelt words and memories.

Members of Fr. Steven’s immediate family also attended, including his father, sister, an uncle, 2 sons and their wives, and his grandson. As well, several members of deanery and diocesan clergy were present.

Father Steven’s official retirement date is November 1. He has spent the last 5 years at Holy Ghost, dedicating so much of his life to shaping and growing the parish.

Holy Ghost thanks him and Mat. Deborah for all their efforts!  They will be extremely missed.
