More Changes Ahead of Us

05-08-2022Weekly ReflectionBernadette Linde, Director of Liturgy & Music

There are many changes coming to our parish, and unfortunately, I will be adding another item to that list.

I will be leaving my position of Director of Music and Liturgy at St. Clare of Assisi effective May 12, 2022.

When I came into this position in November 2013, I could not have imagined how many wonderful people I would meet. All of the clergy, staff, liturgical ministers, choir members, and other parishioners were so welcoming and made me feel at home. Our working relationships have grown into amazing friendships and for that, I am eternally grateful.

I have been working in the church music ministry for over 18 years, which included all of my high school and college years. As many of you know, I recently got married and my husband and I own a house near the Ahwatukee/Chandler area. My new position will allow me to be closer to home. One thing I am excited about is that Fr. Nick’s new parish is only a 10-minute drive from my house. I look forward to being able to continue seeing him!

While I will miss all of you dearly, I am excited for this next chapter in my life. I will continue to pray for all of you and hope you will do the same for me.
