Priestly Fraternity

Some may wonder what Fr. Richard does on his day off.

I enjoy opportunities of priestly fellowship. Yesterday Fr. Lucas Rossi (Pastor, St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Gastonia, NC) and Fr. Casey Coleman (Pastor, St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Sylva, NC) joined me at our St. John the Evangelist – Waynesville, NC Rectory for some prayer, fellowship, food, and a movie. Two Charlotte Diocese Seminarians also joined us for the day and overnight stay – Joseph Wasswa and Lee Benson. Lee will serve here at St. John the Evangelist this summer.

Adoration yesterday evening before vespers in our Waynesville Rectory 3rd Floor Chapel – thanking God for the opportunity to have Joseph and Lee in the Smoky Mountain Vicariate this summer.

We enjoyed dinner together cooked on the grill followed by a movie in the TV Room – “I Can Only Imagine” movie.

Always prayers for the amazing parishioners of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church and Immaculate Conception Catholic Mission (Canton, NC) who make these moments of rest each week possible.

Peace and Joy in Christ,

Fr Richard Sutter
