Bishops, Priests Pray Together


Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio led a Jubilee Year of Mercy Holy Hour for diocesan priests March 13 at Our Lady of Hope Church, Middle Village. It was the last of four prayer services held for priests during Lent. Sponsored by the Offices of Vicar for Clergy and Priestly Life and Ministry, other events were conducted by auxiliary bishops at Holy Name, Windsor Terrace; Our Lady of the Snows, North Floral Park; and St. Bernard’s, Mill Basin. Over 230 priests collectively attended the gatherings. Following prayer, the priests and bishops enjoyed fraternity with a meal together.
