Blessed

Today at Mass we welcomed into our parish a new deacon. That would make one full-time priest, two part-time priests (one of which leads the youth group), and two deacons. Then, at the end of Mass we received more good news. On top of our already wonderful staff, we will be receiving another full-time priest! Our bishop, Most Rev. Charles V. Grahmann, has appointed a new Parochial Vicar to be assigned to our parish. He'll move in and be working in just a few weeks.

How truly blessed is our parish. Despite past difficulties, I am very happy to have new clergy on staff. I pray this helps our parish to be more fruitful and to serve the Lord more perfectly.


+Lord, we thank you with all of our beings for calling these men to your service and allowing them to guide us, your children, to you. Bless our priests and make them holy.

You are so fortunate. With such a shortage in priests, it is very difficult to find parishes with more than one priest.

That's awesome! We just welcomed our second deacon, too, a friend of mine--we were all very glad that Cardinal McCarrick assigned him to our parish as there are other parishes in our town that don't have any deacons, and we were pretty sure he'd end up at one of those.
