Hello Alumni of Divine Word Seminary Bordentown,

Let me update you on the priests and Brothers presently assigned to our Bordentown Community.  Most of you remember Fr. Victor Butler, Fr.Martin Padovani, and Fr. Patrick Connor, Bro. Xavier Eshman, and I from your days here.  Presently we are some 19 priests and Brothers assigned here.  We were thrilled to get Bro. Xavier back from having spent some 27 years in Paraguay ….and he looks the same as he did when he left. He continues to be the hard worker that he always was.  The other priests and Brothers generally have come from the missions or our parishes are semi-retired.  They are a wonderful group of men who have spent their lives serving the Lord throughout the world. Our Rector is Brother Patrick Hogan who spends a good part of his life teaching at our Fu Jen University in Taiwan .

 Since our last gathering in 2005, the Lord called to heaven Fr. Paul Connors, Fr. Norm St. John, Bro. Rich Morrill,   Fr. Francis Mahon.  Just recently Bro Bob Zalikowski’s Mother passed onto eternity.

 Many of you remember Fr. Dave Striet.  He continues on in Rome at our SVD Generalate doing a phenomenally wonderful work as secretary. Although he has been there since the late 1980s, he enjoys his work and knows Rome and the Vatican well.  It would be great if we could get him back for the reunion.  We will surely invite him to come.

 Let me sign off for now and assure you that we here in the Divine Word Community keep all of you and your families in our daily prayers.
