40th anniversary

Although I was ordained on May 10, 1981, my family had opted back in 2019 for an October celebration as it is always pleasant here in early October after the Balloon Fiesta.

The Divine Liturgy was on October 12, the feast of Our Lady of the Pillar. That shrine is where Christopher Columbus and his crew prayed before setting sail in 1492.

October 13 was the dinner; that of course is the anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima in 1917.

You can read my biography and see some photos at this site created by the Eparchy of the Holy Protection of Phoenix.

I am extremely grateful to God for forty years of priesthood – pray that I will be able to be a better priest and a better man for the last third of my life!
