Dear Father Dever and Parish,
Earlier this week I made a decision which will result in my departure as your “music person” effective October 1. I will permanently be joining my mother in Palm Springs after that date.
My association with St. Paul, although brief, has been most gratifying from the start, and I only come to this difficult decision through prayer and my mother’s increasing need for my assistance.
You may or may not also have been informed that the university degraded my employment with them to one teaching day per week, decimating my salary and benefits.
I will be contacting members of the choir individually subsequent to this resignation letter, expressing my appreciation for their fine (and hard) work.
My best wishes to the entire parish family for the exceptional hospitality extended to me during my far too brief stay.
Thank you, Lynn, for your dedicated service. We are sorry to see you go.
