Dear Brothers and Sisters,

What incredible blessings we have all received with the installation and ordination of our new Bishop, Most Rev. James Checchio. This past Tuesday, Bishop James celebrated Mass here at Saint Bartholomew and he was welcomed by the priests, deacons, and people of the Forsgate Deanery. It was a night of tremendous joy and the liturgy was beautiful and spiritually uplifting. The Lord has truly given us a shepherd after His own heart.

Please allow me to express my gratitude for all who helped in the preparation of the Mass and Reception. Thank you for your dedication to Christ and our parish community.

A word of heartfelt gratitude to Lisa Soga for organizing the dinner for Bishop James and the clergy. My excellent parish staff for their generous service and hospitality. Our school principal, Ann Wierzbicki, for preparing the students for their program in the Parish Hall. Meg Brautigan, Sharon Roche, and the members of the HSA for the wonderful refreshments served to all our guests. My brother Knights for ushering in the Church and providing for the needs of our guests. As always, I am greatly blessed to serve with Fr. David, and the holy dea- cons, Tony, Jack, Phil and John.

In closing, Bishop Checchio’s ordination prayer:

Lord our God,
You have chosen your servant, James Francis, to be shepherd of the Church of Metuchen in the tradition of the Apostles.

Give him a spirit of courage and right judgment, a spirit of knowledge and love, so that by governing with fidelity, those entrusted to his care the mystery of your Church may shine forth as a sign of salvation for the world. Amen.

May God bless our new Bishop and his ministry among us.

Pax Christi,

Fr. Thomas
