STA Celebrates Bishop Checchio's Fifth Anniversary of Installation
Posted on 05/04/2021
Monday, May 2nd, marked the Fifth Anniversary of Bishop Checchio's installation as Bishop of the Metuchen Diocese.  To mark this day, the Saint Thomas Aquinas Community held Eucharistic Adoration in the Chapel throughout the day, and everyone was encouraged to spend a few minutes with the Most Precious Body of Christ and to say a prayer for the Bishop on his anniversary, for our school, and for our own families and needs. Father Keith Cervine reminded us that while we might be tired of Zoom, Google Meets, and Microsoft Teams, he hoped that each of us could make some FaceTime with Jesus!

During morning prayer, the school community prayed: “O Lord, who for the feeding of your flock have set your servant Bishop Checchio over it as a successor to the Apostles, grant him, we pray, a spirit of counsel and fortitude, a spirit of knowledge and piety, so that, by faithfully governing the people entrusted to him, he may build up in the world the sacrament of the Church. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever.”

We wish Bishop Checchio a blessed Fifth Anniversary!
