Reverend Christopher Koehn was recognized his past week with a Certificate of Appreciation for his service in Divine Mercy Assembly, 3005. Faithful Navigator William Jackson presented him with a certificate and a mantel clock. Joining in the well-wishing was Past Faithful Navigators Jim Boyd and Lee Heavlin.
We are sure that Fr. Chris will also have a story to tell about receiving the award and memento wearing a mask like the Lone Ranger.
Change is often a time of sadness, but more often it is a time for renewal, new opportunities and growth. The latter is the case for Reverend Christopher S. Koehn. He was recently the recipient of the following news from Most Reverend Luis Rafael Zarama, Bishop of Raleigh.
“Reverend Christopher S. Koehn, Parochial Vicar at Saint Thomas More Parish in Chapel Hill, is appointed Administrator of Saint Mary Magdalene Parish in Apex.”
We knew that his time at the Catholic Community of St. Thomas More would eventually end and that another parish would welcome him. The time is now. Two years have come and gone way too fast.
We are very proud of Father Koehn and know that he will enjoy serving at Saint Mary Magdalene Parish.
Father Chris has touched many, many lives in our town. He has left an indelible mark at our Parish and we are the better for having him with us. We know that he is ready for the new challenges before him.
Luckily for our Assembly, Father Chris will serve as our Faithful Friar for another year.
