Commenting on his return to SMMP Fred said,
I am excited about renewing my friendships at SMM and meeting parishioners here for the first time. I look forward to assisting Father Paul in ministry and Deacon Ken, whom I worked with before and Deacon Terry, whom I knew as a parishioner before he was ordained. I have heard much praise for Father Paul and the Deacons. I feel at home at SMM.
