This past week I celebrated my 26th anniversary as a Roman Catholic Priest. Where does the time go? In some ways it seems just like a couple of weeks ago I was working on putting the Ordination Liturgy together with the three other men who were ordained with me. However, I also know that in my twenty-six years that a lot of good people have crossed my path. People who have showed me unconditional support and love, people who have witnessed to me what a life of faith can look like, people who have showed me what it means to love others with the heart of Jesus. They say that it takes a village to raise a child. As I celebrate my anniversary I want to say that it takes a parish and a Diocese filled with faith filled people to form a priest. I want to thank all of you who have helped form me. May I always desire to follow your faithful example.
God continued Peace,
Fr. Yvon J. Royer
