January 31. 2006
Dear Edward Arguelles,
On behalf of Holy Spirit Parish in McAllen, Texas, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your service to the parish.
With much discernment and prayer, your part-time position as choir director has been eliminated.
This is not a disciplinary action but it is an action which must he taken in the best interest of the Holy Spirit Parish. As a matter of grace, the parish will pay your salary through March 3. 2006. We are willing to do that for your past service to this parish.
This letter is effective upon receipt. Thereafter you will not be authorized to conduct any further business for or in the name of Holy Spirit parish or any of its ministries. From now on, you are not authorized to directly or indirectly use the name of Holy Spirit Parish or any of its ministries in any future activity or event.
Hilda Wedgeworth will arrange with you how you may pick up any of your personal property remaining in any of the parish buildings after today.
Again thank you and wishing you the best.
Rev. Louis Brum
