Ad Multos Annos -- Fr. Tom's 25th Anniversary

. Father Tom with some of the faithful altar boys of Gizo: Desmond, Chris and Adrian.

On July 5th, Fr. Thomas Cardone celebrates the twenty-fifth anniversary of his ordination as a Marianist priest. In those years Fr. Tom has served his Marianist Brothers as Assistant Provincial and Provincial. His priestly ministry has touched thousands of lives at Kellenberg Memorial, Chaminade and St. Martin de Porres Marianist School. We thank Fr. Tom for his witness of fidelity and charity, for his spirit of cheerfulness and simplicity, and for his service to the Church on Long Island and throughout the world. We pray that God will bless him with many more years of fruitful ministry.

"May the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit be glorified
in all places through the Immaculate Virgin Mary."
A prayer used by Marianists from the days of Fr. Chaminade

"Do whatever He tells you."
The motto of Blessed William Joseph Chaminade
