I am not religious and don't attend church, but I know Fr. Moran! I will always remember him bombing around in his little VW! We sure are going to miss him here in MV. I hope he has a long and wonderful retirement. Best regards to a wonderful man and no doubt an excellent clergyman.

Fr. Bob will truly by missed by our downtown parish, the school on Miramonte and all of those whom he helped in our MV community. He has a special gift in being able to explain the Scriptures and Jesus' teaching in terms that both adults and children can relate to and understand. We wish him well on his retirement at the age of 75 and it's been encouraging to see him boucne back after battling some medical challenges. We'll also miss his wry sense of humor and the Irish twinkle in his eye. May the road rise up to meet Fr. Bob in all of his future endeavors!
