A priest’s ministry is centered in and lives out of the celebration of the Eucharist. It is what grounds a priest’s soul, directs their ministry, and is the means through which they gather people into community and into Christ.
Jim’s first celebration of the Holy Eucharist will be with us, his home parish, on June 16th. There will be special prayers offered. Also, Jim will be available to offer blessings to anyone, as it is a very special thing to receive a blessing from a newly ordained priest.
