Clergy Support 2019
“I'm ready to serve those that need service.”
Deacon Kevin Miller, Seminarian
Deacon Kevin Miller, St. Nicholas Parish, Wilkes-Barre, is one of three seminarians recently ordained as transitional deacons by Bishop Joseph C. Bambera as the final step in their formation for the priesthood.
“I am ready to go out there and start doing exactly what the Bishop said to us at the Ordination Mass – proclaim the Gospel, live a good example of a Christian life and serve those that need service.”
Monsignor William Feldcamp
“The Villa is a great blessing, I think, to the Diocese of Scranton. There are not many dioceses in the United States that have a facility this good to take care of their retired priests.”
Retired for four years, Msgr. William Feldcamp lives at the Villa St. Joseph, Dunmore, the Diocesan residence for retired priests. Among his past assignments, Msgr. Feldcamp served at parishes in Wayne County for ten years. In retirement, Msgr. Feldcamp serves the elderly at St. Mary’s Villa, Elmhurst. “I go there five days a week and I say Mass with them, I anoint them, I prepare them.”
Father Vincent Langan
Father Vincent Langan served as an assistant pastor, pastor and teacher for almost 50 years in Bradford County.
Father said of the Appeal, “The Diocesan Appeal is tremendously beneficial. Without the generosity of the people, where would retired priests go?”
Shortly after being interviewed about the Diocesan Annual Appeal, Father Langan was diagnosed with cancer and sadly, he died on September 1, 2019. Father Langan was pleased to support the Annual Appeal and we are honored to recognize his devoted service to our Diocese.
