As Spiritual Fathers, Priests Encourage Their Flocks to Grow in Holiness

Clockwise from top left: Father James Livingston blesses a parishioner on the feast of St. Blaise. Father Christopher Ford offers his June 2, 2019, thanksgiving
Mass at St. Francis of Assisi Church in Naugatuck, Connecticut. Father Andrew Hofer teaches contemplative nuns from different cloistered monasteries as part of the Monastic Theological Studies program at the Dominican Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary in Summit, N.J. And Father Dennis Billy smiles with his students when he was teaching at St. Charles Seminary in 2016.

As Father’s Day is an appropriate time to reflect on the men who have nurtured us, the clergy who guide us spiritually should be considered.
