GOOD SHEPHERD SUNDAY

Fr. Rich

Dear Friends and Parishioners,

Every fourth Sunday in the Easter Season, the Church focuses on Jesus Christ as the Good Shepherd. “Good Shepherd Sunday,” we unofficially call it. It’s a good time for us to reflect on how we let Christ lead us in our daily lives, through our joys and our struggles, as well as lead us when important decisions have to be made. How is Jesus Christ the Shepherd of my life? It’s a question every Christian disciple must ask.
This Sunday also gives us the opportunity to talk about the great need for more “shepherds” in the Church – priest shepherds, specifically. It’s no secret we need more priests, especially priests who want to serve in parishes.

Our Bishop recently released a rather sobering stat: in the next 10 years, over 50 of our diocesan priests will be eligible for retirement (yours truly not included in that number … 70 is the age of retirement for priests in the Trenton Diocese). We have only a little more than 150 active Diocesan Priests currently working. So, the need is great. Do you know someone who you think would make a great priest? Why not tell him. And if that someone is you, why not give Fr. Jorge or me a call this week. We’d love to hear from you. If we don’t get more soon, I may never get to retire!

Peace!
Fr. Rich
