A quote from Peter D. Morelli, Principal, St. Mary's High School - October 24, 2009

"Pope Benedict XVI recently announced that the church is celebrating the Year for Priests. Although recent stories have focused on abuse by some priests, my personal life experience has been blessed with priests who preach the word from the Bible, celebrate the sacraments and by their own example are kind, loving and charitable men.

As a very young boy, I can still remember my mother's joy and affection for our parish priests at St. Gertrude, Father Edward Noonan, who would tease the women after Mass by taking their hats and putting them on his head.

My association continued in grammar school at Annunciation with Monsignor William Burke. He visited classrooms, handed out report cards, and when one received a positive comment from him, it was special. Father Donald Cefalu, a priest at Annunciation, would frequent the playground and join the boys in a game of basketball. It was extraordinary when a priest was with us.

Stockton became a diocese in 1962, and Annunciation Church became the Cathedral. I was assigned to be the personal Mass server for Stockton's first bishop, Bishop Hugh Donohue, at his home on Harding Way. It was a privilege to serve Mass for the bishop and Monsignor James E. Cain. After Mass, there were perks - a visit with the bishop, breakfast served by Mrs. Risso (the housekeeper), and being late for school. What a treat!

Then I spent four years at St. Mary's High School - two years with Franciscan priests and two years with diocesan priests. The two principals at St. Mary's were Fr. Barnabus Hughes, Franciscan Friar, and Monsignor James deGroot, a diocesan priest - both wonderful men. Monsignor Robert Silva, who is still in the Stockton Diocese, was our sophomore religion teacher.

However, in my 26 years at St. Mary's as a teacher and administrator, I have had a close relationship with the religious order of the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales who have been associated with St. Mary's for 40 years. I have worked closely with Father John Fallon, president, and have been fortunate to be mentored by him in my role as principal. Father Fallon is one of the most generous men I have ever met. He never says no to anyone who asks him for a favor. In addition to administering a high school, he celebrates Mass on weekends at O'Connnor Woods and in parishes throughout Stockton. Father Fallon has been asked frequently to perform weddings, baptisms, and funerals. He also presided over my father's anointing of the sick and his funeral.

Father Clark Kelley, a former Spanish teacher at St. Mary's and current chaplain has been an adviser in teaching me about the common-sense spirituality of St. Francis de Sales. Father Kelley, like Father Fallon, works five days a week at St. Mary's and on weekends works in a parish. Over the years he has celebrated Mass at St. Bernard's, Tracy, St. Bernadette's, and currently at St. Luke's, both in Stockton. Father was there for my mother in her last hours. Over the years, I have been closely associated with the Oblates, and have found them to be gentle and kind in spirit and generous to all. It is hard to describe how much these men mean to me.

Another special remembrance of kindness from a priest was from Father Mike Kelly. Our son, Matthew, while in kindergarten at Annunciation, suffered a seizure and was sent to St. Joseph's Hospital on Christmas Eve. Father made that visit and others to see how Matthew was during his stay.

Priests are often criticized, as are many in positions of leadership, but I think they are really unsung heroes. We need to be grateful for our priests, as Pope Benedict has strongly suggested to all Catholics throughout the world.

The Lord said, "I have come to serve and not to be served." This statement reflects the role of the priest.

Giving thanks and being grateful is the call from Pope Benedict in celebrating the Year for Priests. Grateful people have a profound sense of trust: trust in God and trust in others.

Pope Benedict has called us to be grateful people for the work of priests and to celebrate the loving and charitable men who serve the faithful, who, with their priests, serve God, the church and the kingdom of heaven. "
