“It’s all about loving and serving the Lord Jesus and his people,” the Bishop says in a Q and A interview with The Monitor.

The Monitor’s annual LIVES OF FAITH section has just been published, featuring profiles on priests celebrating 25- and 50-year anniversaries as well as those who are retiring. Clergy marking other special anniversaries are also recognized.

This year, the tribute includes a reflection by Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., who is observing the 10th anniversary of his episcopal ordination and being named bishop of the Diocese of Trenton.

“It’s all about loving and serving the Lord Jesus and his people,” he says.

The LIVES OF FAITH section is in the July issue of The Monitor Magazine – and has been sent to subscribers. To order a copy or to subscribe, write to Monitor-Subscriptions@DioceseofTrenton.org.
