By its very name, this Annual Brunch highlights the role of the family in the life of our clergy. And I am not only speaking of the married clergy, for the celibate clergy often have living parents, and siblings, cousins, aunts and uncles. Our clergy families are larger than those that share the dwelling. But certainly, understanding the life of the married clergy – of the families with children of varying ages and needs, is vital for successful ministries in our Archdiocese today.
