Message of Bishop-Elect Sweeney, Paterson Diocese

May 26, 2020
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
May the Peace and Joy of our Risen Lord be with you in this final week of the Easter Season. With an awareness that this Easter Season of 2020 has been different from any other in our experience, I write at this time to greet you and thank so many of you who have reached out to welcome me and offer your prayers since I was named by our Holy Father to serve as the eighth Bishop of the Paterson. I am also aware that many of you have experienced the loss of a member or members of your community to the Coronavirus/COVID-19. I offer my condolences and assure you of my prayers. I am also praying for those who are sick and fighting the virus at this time, as well as those who are ministering to and caring for the sick.
I look forward, all going well, in the Fall to be able to invite representatives from all the parishes and communities of the Diocese to come together as the Diocesan Church for a “Mass of Welcome.”
I ask for your prayers in these days of transition and preparation.  I promise to remember you, your community and intentions in my prayers.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Bishop-elect Kevin J. Sweeney
Diocese of Paterson
