Some GOOD NEWS about our priests and seminarians:
Congratulations to Father Modestus who graduated from the Clinical Pastoral Education Program at the Hershey Medical Center this past week. Along with his duties as Catholic hospital chaplain and all he does at the parish, Father Modestus has been taking two years of intensive training and studying through the hospital. From all night stints at the hospital to writing papers and lots of reading, Father has worked very hard without any complaining. We have a good man in Father Modestus!
We say goodbye to Father Ignatius. He has been reassigned by his Dominican Community to be a chaplain for the Marines stationed in North Carolina. It has been a delight to live and work with Father Ignatius and I know many have been touched by his joyful liturgies. Thank you, Father, and God bless you!
I am happy to announce that our parish has been chosen to have seminarians placed here as part of their Pastoral Formation Education Program. Matthew Collins from the Archdiocese of Hartford, Connecticut and Jonathan Fioramonti from the Diocese of Arlington, Virginia will be here with us on Wednesday afternoons and will be learning about ministry to the sick in the hospital, in nursing homes and in visits to shut-ins. It is an honor to help form seminarians on their road to the priesthood.
Keep your priests and seminarians in your prayers. We need them!
