I hate June

It's Father's Day month which always depresses me a little and today we just found out that our parochial vicar is leaving us to go to St. John the Beloved. Farewell, Fr. Aragorn. I knew that brilliant mind wouldn't be allowed to stay long at our little parish but we will miss him.

Is that in McClean? If so, does Fr. Aragorn know how to offer the Mass in the extraordinary form? If not, it will be a wonderful opportunity for him!

Yep. And yes, he does. He speaks Latin beautifully and it is a great opportunity for him. Truthfully St. John the Beloved is just where he should be.

Arlington's website does not mention him. But, it does state that Fr. Scalia will be administrator of St. John's. Maybe Fr. Aragorn will remain in your parish! Or maybe it was a last minute decision...

June isn't my favorite month either :(. Too many things to remember that happened this month to me as well. :(

It was a last minute thing. The pastor at St. John is in no shape to do anything and won't be for a while so our guy was drafted.
