A grateful heart

To the Editor:

Two weeks ago, Monsignor Dan Hermes, pastor of St. Thomas the Apostle Church, presented me a papal blessing, acknowledging my years of music ministry.

How wonderful. First, I thank God for His many blessings, without which this would not be possible, along with the love and support of parents, my husband, children and many others.

Thank you to Jami and Kyle and the Northwest Herald for capturing this memorable evening.

A special thank you to Music Director Julie Hermann, who planned this wonderful surprise.

God’s blessings to all.
