Fr. Steve Voyt is retiring from the Air Force effective August 4, 2014 and will be returning to his home Diocese of Pensacola, Fl.
He arrived at Moody AFB in July, 2010 and has been on call whenever we needed him to celebrate Mass or hear confessions.
He will celebrate the 5:00 p.m. Mass one last time for us on Saturday, August 9 so we can say our good-byes and wish him well. If you’d like to give him a card of thanks, we will place a basket by the baptismal pool in Church. You may also drop cards off in the Church Office.
