Farewell to Our Beloved Priests

Fr. Andrew: A Beacon of Courage

Courage is doing what is right even when you are afraid. This is a lesson I have learned from Fr. Andrew over the past five years. Under his guidance, I transitioned from being just a parishioner to a moderator, a journey I consider a divine gift. As we bid farewell to our Parish Priest, I want to express the gratitude of the entire Aquem Parish for the remarkable growth and development we’ve experienced under his leadership from 2017 to 2024. The impact of his contributions will always be remembered, and a part of him will remain with us, continually praying for us. We wish Fr. Andrew good health and all the best in his future endeavors.


Fr. Leslie: A Heart Full of Innocence

Remaining childlike is a tremendous state of innocence, and this perfectly describes Fr. Leslie. He possesses an innocent soul, one that expresses joy through Singing and sorrow through tears, with his face reflecting every emotion. Over the past four years, I have come to appreciate his keen eye for beauty and his soulful voice. As we say goodbye to Fr. Leslie, we hope that one day he will return as our Parish Priest. Until then, we send him off with our heartfelt blessings. God bless you, Fr. Leslie.
