Easter Message

Dear Parishioners,

Easter is the fulfillment of our Catholic faith. The resurrection of our Lord is the great triumph over sin and death. Let us rejoice alongside our Risen Lord this Easter. Come spend time with Him in Eucharistic Adoration. Experience the healing and forgiveness of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Receive His body and blood at Mass. Opening yourself to the opportunities of this Easter season will allow you to participate in the fullness of this most sacred Holy Day. Enjoy Easter the way you were meant to; with Jesus.

Sincerely yours in Christ,
Father Paul Helwig
Father Benedict Faneye
Deacon Fran Gorman
Deacon Pat Kiley

Farewell Father Fidelis; Welcome Father Ben

Father Fidelis has reported to his new duties at
the Geisinger Medical Center, the Emmanuel Center and Maria-Joseph Manor in Danville, Pa, and Father
Benedict Faneye, O.P., has begun his assignment as Parochial Vicar at Good Shepherd Parish.

Father Ben is a Dominican priest whose native land is Nigeria. He was born in 1966 and has four siblings, one
of whom is also a priest. He entered the Dominican community in 1985 at which time he began his priestly
formation program. After completing Postulancy and Novitiate and the required philosophical studies, he was
sent to the US to complete his theological studies, which he did in 1994. That year he was ordained in
the US and served in parochial ministry in the Archdiocese of Washington, DC, and continued graduate
studies at Catholic University. His academic career took him to Duquesne University in Pittsburgh where he
did doctoral studies in Health Care Ethics. Having completed his studies in 2005, he returned to teach in his community’s Dominican Institute and University in Nigeria. He has held positions in the community as Director of Students and Director of Development and Missions. His return to the US in 2009 brought him back to the community’s provincial house in Washington, DC, until his assignment to Good Shepherd Parish in Camp
Hill. We welcome Father Ben and wish him well in his ministry with us.
