• 2018 Synod of Bishops Preparatory Survey - 2018 Synod of Bishops Preparatory Survey - 2018 Synod of Bishops Preparatory Survey - The Holy Father has called for a Synod of Bishops to be held in October of 2018. The theme of the Synod is "Young People, the Faith and Vocational Discernment." In anticipation of this historic gathering the Synod Office has developed an anonymous online survey for people between the focused age group of 16-29. The survey is an exciting opportunity for young people to cooperate directly with the Synod process, so they are encouraged to participate. It is available in both English or Spanish here: https://survey-synod2018.glauco.it/limesurvey/index.php/147718.
  • Introducing and welcoming our new priest to Saint Ann. Father Bernard "Bernie" O'Connor, OSFS Introducing and welcoming our new priest to Saint Ann. Father Bernard "Bernie" O'Connor, OSFS Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ- I am long overdue in introducing and welcoming our new priest to Saint Ann. Father Bernard "Bernie" O'Connor, OSFS arrived at the beginning of September. I was so pleased to welcome him but just two days later I had to send him out with Father Bill to be evacuated during Hurricane Irma. Father Bernie did not even get a chance to unpack! He is settling in now and I know as our retired Priest in Residence, he will be a blessing to us all, Father Bernie retired in August after serving for seventeen years as President of DeSales University in Center Valley, Pennsylvania. His tenure at the university, however, was an incredible forty-three years. Prior to being named President in 1999, Father Bernie served as Executive Vice President of the University, as Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and as Academic Dean. Father Bernie joined the faculty of DeSaIes University, formerly Allentown College of Saint Francis de Sales, as an instructor in Philosophy in 1974. He served as Assistant Professor of Philosophy and as Chair of the Philosophy Department from 1980 until 1987 at which time he was named Associate Professor and Chair of the Philosophy and Theology Departments, Father received a Bachelor's Degree in 1969 and a Master's Degree in 1971, both in Philosophy from the Catholic University of America. He earned a second Master's Degree from De Sales School of Theology in 1974 and in 1986, he completed his Doctorate in Philosophy from Catholic University. During his time as President, De Sales University experienced incredible growth in its infrastructure, curriculum and enrollment. He expanded partnerships with colleges and universities across the globe. While Father O'Connor's curriculum vitae is impressive, what pleases me most is the approach that he has taken in his many years of ministry. Father Bernie is present, supportive and caring. He has taken concern for every student and employee he has ministered to and he brings that care, concern, and pastoral style to his presence here. What struck me in a recent visit to the University is how, during our walk around the campus, he stopped to speak with every University employee he encountered and thanked each and every one of them for their work! As we know, no priest every truly retires. Father Bernie wants to stay active! He will be presiding at a couple of daily Masses weekly and at least one Sunday liturgy. He will be assisting with Confessions, hospital visits once or twice a week and has promised to teach an occasional adult Faith Formation class. What a treat that will be for us! In fact, in his 43 years at the university, Father never stopped teaching, even during his tenure as President. Father Bernie is a model Oblate and we are truly blessed to have him as a part of the Saint Ann Parish Community. Please join me in welcoming him! Sincerely yours in Christ, (Rev.) Michael Christopher Vannicola, OSFS
