New Pastor

On Monday we had the privilege of meeting Reverend Monsignor Robert S. Meyer, the new pastor for St. Teresa of Avila parish, Summit. Monsignor Meyer made it a point to put a visit with us at the top of his agenda, and we are so glad he did! We got to know each other over cookies and cocoa. Msgr. Meyer, or Father Bob, is not only a civil lawyer but a canon lawyer as well. We told him we'd be coming to him with all of our canon law questions! The list of his academic and pastoral accomplishments is impressive, and we're grateful to Cardinal Tobin for sending such a dedicated priest to serve at St. Teresa's. Like Pope Francis, Msgr. Meyer flipped the table on us and asked us to pray for him at the end of the visit when usually the priest prays over us! Sr. Mary Martin led a prayer asking God to bless and prosper Msgr. Meyer's work at the parish, and afterwards Msgr. gave us his blessing.
