Archbishop Nelson Pérez joined his brother priests Dec. 19 for a Mass and lunch at Villa St. Joseph. Villa St. Joseph is the retirement community for archdiocesan priests in Darby, Delaware County.

Archbishop Pérez said, “During this Holy Season of Advent, let’s express our prayerful gratitude to all of our retired priests, religious sisters, and consecrated religious for their many years of faithful service to the Church and her people. May God bless them abundantly this Christmas and always!”
