Dear Father John,
I have been a member of this congregation since the day I was born and have been baptized in the very church, which you are now serving. It has been a great honor for me to have known you personally.
We are having a celebration to culminate the charity program that we have implemented a month ago in our country. It was not an easy four weeks. The entire activity was marked by long hours of work, which were carried through by our dedicated staff. Thanks to them and your invaluable support and guidance, the program was a success.
It will honor us greatly if you could come and grace the occasion with your kind presence. This invitation also extends to the members of your staff. I am looking forward to seeing you at the event, as well as the other members of the organization.
