Dear Monsignor Montecalvo:

This letter is official confirmation that your request to retire as Pastor of St. Sebastian Parish, Providence, has been approved to be effective July 1, 2018. You may announce this to your parishioners at your convenience.

I take this opportunity to express, in my own name and on behalf of the Church in the Diocese of Providence, our profound gratitude for your dedicated priestly ministry. Your service to the Church and the pastoral care you have extended to your parishioners throughout the years have manifested the presence and care of Jesus Christ, the Good Shepard. I hope that you will be willing and able to continuing exercising your priestly ministry in other ways as your health permits. Your prayerful presence among us will be a true blessing for our Diocesan Church.

Again, thank you for your devoted service as a Priest of the Lord Jesus. May God bless you with much health and happiness, grace and peace now and the days and years to come.

With personal and prayerful best wishes,

I remain,

Sincerely yours,

Thomas J. Tobin

Bishop of Providence
