Farewell, Father Langan
Parishioners of St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Little Meadows hosted a farewell luncheon for their pastor, Father William J. Langan, on Sunday, July 2. Father Langan, who is also pastor of St. Francis Xavier Church in Friendsville and St. Patrick in Middletown, has been pastor there for ten years (longer than any other pastor in the history of St. Thomas). He has been re-assigned to St. Francis Assisi Church in Nanticoke, Pennsylvania. The new pastor will be Father Jeffery Paulish, who was the chaplain at the Little Flower Nursing Home in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. The parishioners will miss Father Langan and wish him well at his new assignment.
