Fr. Bruce Siket, cluster 5 pastor, MaineNEW - The Pastor's Voice

July 2015.  It has been several weeks since I have written a Pastor's Voice and I have a topic that might interest a few people. In the course of my daily responsibilities, I deal with the staff in many ways. As I drive between Millinocket and East Millinocket planning my trips to make sure that Charleen and Judy are where I think they are, it occurs to me that things would be easier and more efficient at Christ the Divine Mercy Parish if everything was in one office.Read Father's message to us.
