Hi Corinne!
Oh my! Can it really be since 1977 when both of us were at St. Basil? My first appointment and now am most happily retired! Where did 43 years go?
Saw your video on line and your acceptance of the reward. Bravo for the Adrians!
I hope you are well, Corinne. St. Basil- with Gerry Britz, Louie Reva, Helen Berhgoff, Agnes Barrett and others got me off to a tremendous start in ministry! Keep up the great work. I am ever grateful to the Adrians for my 12 years of primary and secondary education. Give Fran Nadolny my best when you see her. We both come from the same neighborhood at the once St. Agatha parish in Redford.
Be well, Corinne and God bless!
