Farewell, Father Thomas

The Nome faith community was sad to see the departure of Father Thomas Sagili from St. Joseph Catholic Church at the end of April.

Fr. Thomas has been reassigned to Utqiagvik, formerly known as Barrow. Remaining at St. Joseph’s, however, is Fr. Kumar Pasala, who was assigned to the Nome area at the same time as Fr. Thomas. KNOM supporters remain in the prayers of St. Joseph parishioners, especially in special intentions at Friday Mass once a month.
