Looking Back: Jubilarian Celebrations 2010, Part I

Praise our God, our Creator and One who chooses our vocation!

Today is a very special day for we celebrate the lives of men and women in the priesthood and religious life. Mass, of course, is the hightlight of the event; afterwards, each priest, brother, nun or sister celebrating 50, 60, 70 and 75 years of their profession or ordination is recognized. What a joy this occasion is!

This blog honors them all. We thank you, each one of you, whom God called to minister to his children one way or another. You are all a blessing to us. Your service and dedication is an inspiration!
