We were so inspired by this congratulatory letter from Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, written to Father John on this special occasion.
A beautiful Spiritual Bouquet from some dear friends of Father John's and Catholic Charities' - each petal marks prayers said on his behalf!
Father John celebrated Mass with Catholic Charities' Board of Directors...
And the Board presented Father John with this plaque to commemorate his milestone anniversary in the priesthood. The quote on it read:
You can do something I can't do
I can do something you can't do.
Together let us do something
beautiful to God.
Please join us in congratulating Father John on his 40th anniversary in the priesthood - leave a note in the comment box below!
