In August, Father Joe Serano celebrated his 50th anniversary of ordination. With two presentations on two Tuesday nights (or alternatively two Wednesday mornings), he will share some of what has been his experience — on what it means to be a priest and how that expresses itself in ministry.
The documents of Vatican II reaffirm that Jesus is THE priest within the believing community we call the church and ALL the baptized share in that priesthood. Both these truths are crucial to understanding “ordination.” Similarly, with pastoral ministry, to understand the role of the ordained, we have to begin with Jesus as the Good Shepherd (pastor in Latin) and a recognition that all the members of the church are called to share in that “shepherding” (e.g. the vocation to be a parent or grandparent). From these starting points, one can begin to build a theology of priesthood and ministry. (Each session will allow ample time for discussion.)

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
