MESSAGE FROM THE BISHOP ON THE OCCASION OF
THE 25th ANNIVERSARY OF HIS ORDINATION TO THE PRIESTHOOD, JUNE 20

“First and foremost, I am grateful to God, for the gifts of life and faith, the gift of His mercy in His calling me to follow Him as one of his priests; I love being a priest. I am so grateful to God for His love and for His calling me to be with Him and follow Him in holy priesthood. I am likewise grateful to God for the grace He has given me over these 25 years which has sustained me in being faithful to my priestly promises. I certainly pray that many more young men in our diocese will respond to God’s call, and we need to make every effort to be sure our young people can hear that call and know what a blessed life it is to follow Him through a call to the priesthood or religious life. As I celebrate this milestone anniversary, please continue to pray for me and know that I pray daily for you, too.”

– Most Rev. James F. Checchio, Bishop of Metuchen
