17 Years Ago...

On Saturday, June 24, 2000 on the Feast of the Birth of St. John the Baptist, six men were ordained as Priests for the Diocese of Pittsburgh by Bishop Wuerl. I was one of those men that day who experienced a special birth in their faith journey by receiving the gift of Ordained Priesthood.  As I look back and reflect upon 17 years in ministry as a priest, I have lived in three counties and was a part of five different parishes.  I have experienced and learned sooooo much over these years.  I am grateful for the loving care and support that I have experienced over this time.  I am especially grateful to you, my home family of faith and early formation advisers, for your multitude of gifts, witness of faith, and supportive loving care that you give and share with me this day.  Thanks to all of you for making my 17 years of Priesthood so awesome!! I look forward to our many years together in the days ahead as we continue to do loving service in ministry and the Mission of Jesus in the community of the world!!
