In May 2008, I was ordained as a Permanent Deacon and assigned to St. James. At the time, my wife and I had little awareness of the many changes facing us in the future. When St. James closed in 2010, and we moved over to St. Clement, it was one of the hardest times of our lives leaving behind what we knew at St. James since 1977.

St. Clement, however, quickly became our family and over the next two years we got to know so many new and wonderful people. In 2012, when St. James re-opened, I began to minister at both parishes along with Fr. Workman. These last twelve years serving at both parishes has had its demands, but the rewards far outweigh everything else.

On July 1, 2024, I will be retiring from active ministry at both parishes and Geri and I will begin a new chapter as we look forward to travel and spending winters in a warmer climate. After our accident a year ago, it has become more challenging both emotionally and physically to drive into town one, two or three times a week.

We will both be exploring ways to become involved in our NEW parish in Huron, and I will look at ways I may assist in Huron and Florida.

We ask for your prayers on this next journey. Know that we will always keep you in our prayers.

Love and blessings,
Deacon Danny and Geri Bryan
