Leadership lessons from a 'gentleman archbishop'
I first met Archbishop John J. Myers 35 years ago when I was a newly ordained priest and he was newly returned to the Diocese of Peoria, IL, after completing a doctorate in Canon Law. He was named vice chancellor and vocation director and was assigned to live at the cathedral rectory, which was the next parish over from where I was assigned after my ordination that year (1976).
I remember he called to welcome me to the area and invited me to the Cathedral for a get together. I remember how impressed I was as a young priest that he would take the time to personally call me and offer me his friendship when I was new in the city and had no real friends there.

Long-Distance Faith Journeys Converge on May 23
Providing a global backdrop for the ordination of priests in the Archdiocese of Newark, Pope Benedict XVI, in his recent call for a "year of the priest," declared that priestly ordination creates "new men who are bestowed with the gift and office of sanctifying, teaching and governing."
As part of the worldwide celebration, the pope will proclaim Saint John Vianney to be patron saint of all priests (see The Catholic Advocate, April 22). Saint John Vianney currently is considered the patron saint of parish priests. In addition, the pope praised the grand legacy of Pope John Paul II as a spiritual leader who inspired many to pursue vocations to the priesthood and consecrated life.

Long-Distance Call; Adjunct Clergy Share Not-So-Foreign Faith
Well into their summer assignments at parishes throughout the four counties of the Archdiocese of Newark, a predominate reaction among adjunct clergy from around the world is a deep appreciation of this country's multiculturalism, which they gained during an enriching pastoral experience among a devote and welcoming faithful.
The archdiocese-one of the most culturally and ethnically diverse corners of the United States-is one of the national leaders in utilizing summer adjunct priests. While the visiting priests benefit from their U.S. experiences, faith communities, in turn, learn about the broad spectrum of cultures these priests represent.
