at his Jubilee Mass ~ February 16th ~ 12:30 p.m. Bishop Lynch and Fr. Reiserts 's Provincial Fr. Francis Gasparik will attend All are invited to celebrate with them After Ordination, my First Mass was celebrated at St. Michael's Church, East New York, Brooklyn. I returned to the seminary, along with my eleven classmates, to complete the last months of studies. During that time we were called “simplex priests” (no pun intended) because we could not hear confession. We had not finished studies or passed the oral examinations. Examinations were in June. During July and August I covered the duties of the friars who were on vacation. Much of my free time being spent at the World's Fair in Flushing Meadow, NY. In September, 1964, I was assigned to our parish of the Sacred Heart in Yonkers, NY. In addition to the usual round of parish duties, I also taught religion in the parish high school where I quickly discovered why I did not become a Jesuit like my cousin. Read the Full Story
