Caring for Our Treasured Gifts
Our senior priests are among the most treasured gifts in our diocese. While they no longer have administrative responsibility for a specific parish, they continue to serve the people of our diocese. They celebrate Mass for pastors who are ill or on vacation and they assist in a wide variety of other ways. They hear confessions, they visit nursing homes, hospitals and prisons; they continue their priestly life to the extent that age and health permits. These dedicated servants of the Church have been our teachers, builders, ministers, confessors, counselors and our friends. We’ve turned to them in time of great tragedy, and we have invited them to join in celebrating our times of great joy. We’ve asked for their prayers. We have entrusted them with the education and spiritual development of our children.
