Let’s pause for a moment to celebrate the priests in our diocese who have risen to the pastoral challenge of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are blessed with their energy, creativity, and willingness to step out of their comfort zones to minister to the faithful during this unusual time. From live-streamed Mass to increased demand at food pantries to ministering from social distances, we are blessed with their perseverance and love. Consider offering a prayer or expression of thanks for your pastor today.
Gracious and loving God, thank You for our priests. May they, and we all, continue to be renewed and refreshed during this Easter season. Amen.
