Native Son, Father Robert Wolfe,

Ordained a Priest


St. Joseph Parish native son Father Robert Wolfe was ordained a priest by Bishop Frank Caggiano on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at a beautiful ceremony at St. Augustine Cathedral in Bridgeport. Born and raised at St. Joseph’s, where he also attended St. Joseph School, Father Wolfe celebrated a joyous and solemn First Mass the next day, Sunday, May 18, in the church where he had been baptized, made First Communion, and was confirmed. Thirteen priests concelebrated his First Mass with him, assisted by two deacons, including (ABOVE, l to r) Deacon Brad Smythe, Rev. Joseph Marcello (who also preached), Rev. Marcel Saint-Jean, Deacon John Piatak, Rev. Kristof Kuczinski, and Msgr. Chris Walsh. It was followed by a large parish reception in the newly-renovated Herman Pastore Church Hall, with a beautiful “ordination cake” (LEFT) homemade by parishioner Terry Pearce. READ MORE
