Living and serving among the Catholic faithful of the Diocese of Trenton has brought great joy and a sense of deep fulfillment for the clergy and religious who are marking special anniversaries of their ministry this year. In turn, our parishes, schools, hospitals and ministries are forever changed by the presence of these faithful servants. In this annual tribute, The Monitor acknowledges the men and women who have dedicated their lives in service to the Gospel. We join with the many parishes and other groups included in this publication in expressing our love and gratitude, and we ask God to continue to bless these Lives of Faith.
