Fr. Gerald Souza Chosen to Lead Our Lady of Fatima Parish!

With gratitude and joy, I am pleased to announce that Fr. Gerald Souza has been chosen to lead our community of faith beginning on June 1.  Cardinal O'Malley has appointed a good and holy priest for us.   

 

A native of Plymouth, Fr Souza grew up in Saint Kateri Tekakwitha Parish where he first pictured himself as a priest.  He spent much time working at the seafood restaurant his family had on the town wharf.  After graduting from Sacred Heart High School in Kingston in 2004, he became a seminarian for the Archdiocese of Boston.  He attended Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia, graduated from the Franciscan University of Steubenville with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, and earned a Master of Divinity in Theology from Saint John's Seminary in Brighton, MA.  Fr. Souza was ordained to the priesthood by Cardinal Sean O'Malley on May 23, 2013.  After serving in the Billerica Catholic Collaborative as his first assignment, Fr. Souza moved to South Boston where he became parochial vicar to the parish collaborative of St. Monica-St. Augustine, St Peter, and St. Vincent de Paul. Fr. Souza enjoys returning to Plymouth to visit his family, which includes his parents, his brother, and his brother's family.  Fr. Souza appreciates being outside year-round—going to the beach, golfing poorly, running slowly in warmer months. and skiing in the colder months.  

 Fr. Souza has a great love for Christ, the Church, and the priesthood.  I am so honored to pass the leadership of our parish onto him. Thank you, in advance, for the very warm welcome you will extend to Fr. Souza.  He will be a great blessing to you and to our community. 

Blessings, 

Fr Rich Erikson

     

We Welcome Fr. Jerry Hogan to Serve as OLF Temporary Administrator 

We are grateful and delighted that Fr. Jerry Hogan will serve as our temporary administrator from April 19 until June 1.  Fr. Hogan is a priest of the Archdiocese of Boston who has served in many parishes in the archdiocese in full time ministry and, more recently, assisting where there is a temporary need.  Known as the "Circus Priest,"  Fr. Hogan is the chaplain for traveling circuses across America. Fr. Jerry fell in love with the circus as a boy when his father took him to a Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey show at the old Boston Garden. Though he followed the circus from afar as a seminarian, and later as a college chaplain, he rekindled his passion in 1990, when he joined the Circus Fans Association of America and became the circus chaplain in 1993. Fr. Jerry works under the auspices of the US Catholic Conference of Bishops, which sponsors similar missions for seafarers, migrant farm-workers, carnival employees and race-car drivers. The job of circus chaplain has been held by a Roman Catholic priest ever since Fr. Ed Sullivan founded the ministry in the mid-1920's. Welcome Fr. Hogan, we are looking forward to our time with you!
