Fr. Garrett K. McIntyre

Rev. Garrett McIntyre

What a blessing we received last weekend in the announcement of our new parochial vicar, Rev. Mr. Stephen Pellessier, who will be ordained a priest next Saturday!

St. Bernard Church is blessed to have someone with his energy, enthusiasm, and passion for the Gospel. I know how well loved he was during his deacon assignment here and I know that will only grow over these next few years. A priest's first assignment is so important. There's only so much that can be taught in the seminary. The first parish is where a priest truly learns how to be a priest (as we are constantly learning). It's where he learns his place in the community and what his vocation brings to peoples' lives. 

It's also important for a parish to remember what they can provide for a new priest. New priests should be supported and encouraged. We have to remember the many "firsts" he will experience in his first year. I remember after I had been at my first parish assignment for a couple of months, some parishioners approached me with a couple of practical advice suggestions having to do with the way I celebrated mass. Their suggestions were great pieces of advice that would have never been taught in the seminary. I appreciated their willingness to share that to help me better celebrate the mass but most of all I appreciated the love with which they shared it. In countless ways, the lay faithful help priests to be better priests. That's what I am confident will happen for (future) Fr. Pellessier here at St. Bernard.

Please keep him in your prayers this week as he prepares for ordination.
