Praying for our priests

It is a long time since I've posted the priest prayer list on the blog, so here it is. 

The original criterion was priests who have generously responded to the wishes of the laity and celebrated the EF Mass (noting that is no guarantee of orthodoxy or holiness, but that some priests may need our prayers more than others!), but I'm happy to be flexible in terms of suitable additions to the list.

All priests have been listed twice, under diocese and ordination or episcopal consecration date/obit date where known.

Apologies if I've left anyone off I've previously included or made some other error - just let me know.  Please do provide additions or corrections - and I'm especially keen to hear from priests whose ordination date I don't have either in the comments box below, or through email (see my profile box in the righthand column near the bottom).

This is a good list. Thanks for posting it, and thanks for your continued blog entires. Always makes for interesting reading.

Just a word from WA... Father Jim Shelton, wonderful and holy man that he is, has left the Archdiocese of Perth and is back in his homeland somewhere in the USofA.
I'm sure he'll be most grateful for our prayers.

Ave Maria!

John said...

Great idea Kate. I've added to my list of intentions.

Just two notes. Bendigo and Sandhurst are one and the same. And Fr Leo Lane is a priest of that diocese not Melbourne, although he's living his retirement in Warrnambool, where I visit him from time to time.

John said...

And another thing! (Sorry.)

Please add to the list Fr Henry Nikel SVD, of the Ballarat Diocese.

Kate said...

Thanks for those corrections and additions John! Done...

Kate,

I just now stumbled on this post.

Fr Colin Marshall has been a member of the Catholic Community of Blessed John Henry Newman and saying the EF Mass at St Aloysius' Church, Caulfield since early 2011. Check out the community here: http://newman-community-melbourne.org/

Fr Marshall is shown here: http://newman-community-melbourne.org/images/Epiphany-2012/images/23.html giving the sermon at the Solemn Mass for the Epiphany.

Fr Nicholas Pearce said...

Kate,

In fairness you should add Fr Bob Maquire the soon to retire PP of South Melbourne to the list of priests of the Archdiocese of Melbourne who have celebrated the EF.

We should encourage Fr Bob for this brave step, and pray that in his retirement he will continue to find time to celebrate the EF for communities who desire it.

Dear Tommy G,
My name is Donald Ference. I'am an old neighborhood friend of Fr. Jim Shelton and I lost his e-mail address when I moved to Florida. If anyone has his address I would sincerely appreciate. May God bless you for your effort. Thank You.
