Congrats, Father Joe!

Congratulations to (former Family Formation kid and) the newly ordained Father Joseph Gifford. We’re so proud!

Joseph is grateful to his parents for living out the Catholic faith.  “My parents fostered my vocation through their witness to the faith and by their passing down of the faith to me and my brothers,” he said.  Elaine and Doug are involved in various ministries including Family Formation, Extraordinary Eucharistic Ministry, Vacation Bible School, and the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) parents. “I would just like to thank everyone at St. Paul’s for all of your prayers and support over the years, as well as your constant witness to the love of God in your lives,” said Deacon Joe.

(And it’s official now that there’s a Fr. Joe paper doll.)
