Happy first anniversary of your ordination, Fr. Chris! How wonderful that your first anniversary is in this Jubilee year of mercy! May the Lord richly bless you!

I have known Chris since 1984 and yes, he is the "Energizer Bunny" and is now dedicating his life "and mouth" to do God's work. The Marians are lucky to have him. So excited to see what God has in store for him !!!

Fr. Ron told us he gave you the "energizer" name, how wonderful! Blessings to you on your ordination to the priesthood. You are welcome to visit us any time here in Darien, IL. May the Lord bless you in whatever way you need.

I do include all priests and religious in my daily prayers, but will pray that you be immersed in the Holy Spirit on your ordination day. May Mama Mary and our Lord keep you and strengthen you in your vocation. God bless.

May God bless your call to the priesthood with the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception (Divine Mercy Fathers). Pope John Paul II taught parents to pray the rosary through Familia (John Paul II's writings on Catechesis) and young parents, in turn, taught their young children to pray the rosary. May you continue to lead souls to Christ in your divine mercy ministry. In Christ, Sheri
