Dear McDevitt Family,

I could not be more thankful that Bishop Gainer for giving me the opportunity to serve as chaplain to Bishop McDevitt High School. McDevitt is known for its tradition and excellence, and I am blessed and honored to say that I am now a part of such an amazing McDevitt family. I have already felt so welcomed by all of you, and I cannot thank you enough for that!

I very much look forward to getting to know all of you and seeing what God has in store for us as we embark on the next part of our faith journey. Know that my door is always open should you ever need me, so please do not hesitate to reach out. Once again, it truly is my honor and pleasure to be your chaplain. Please be assured of my prayers, and please pray for me as well!

Looking forward to an amazing year! 

In Christ,
​Fr. Weaver
Chaplain, Bishop McDevitt High School
