We are pleased to present the LIVES OF FAITH Keepsake Issue in which we honor those priests, deacons and religious men and women who are marking notable anniversaries this year of their ordination or consecration. We also recognize the priests who have just retired from full-time ministry this year.

In his message announcing this special tribute, Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., writes, “No priest, deacon, religious brother or sister can be expected to recall all the many people whose lives they touched, whose crosses they helped to carry, whose joys they encouraged, whose faith they strengthened. But people remember the difference that these servants of the Lord Jesus made in their lives.

We invite you to read the stories of these extraordinary individuals and the lives of faith they have dedicated to the Lord. We are offering all members of our Diocese full access to this special edition, which you will find HERE.

The LIVES OF FAITH print edition has been mailed to all PREMIUM SUBSCRIBERS. Not yet a PREMIUM subscriber? Sign up today by clicking HERE, or writing to Monitor-Subscriptions@DioceseofTrenton.org.

As we all return to something akin to normal this September, we are planning lots of interesting news and features for the next magazine issue. Our IN FOCUS section will unpack the subject of “Passing On the Faith,” just in time for a new school year.  Be sure to watch for it.

Blessings to you and yours on these final days of summer.  We continue to keep you all in prayer.
