Rev. Mr. James King to be ordained May 7


Bishop Joseph A. Galante will ordain James Henry King IV to the priesthood on Saturday, May 7, 10:30 a.m., in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, 642 Market Street, Camden.

Rev. Mr. King, 29, from Erial, is a graduate of Highland Regional High School in Blackwood, and St. Charles Borromeo Seminary in Philadelphia. He grew up at the former St. Jude in Blackwood, more recently lived in Transfiguration Parish, West Collingswood.

He served as a transitional deacon at Infant Jesus Parish in Woodbury Heights, where he will offer his first Mass on Sunday, May 8 at 2 p.m. in St. Margaret Church.

Rev. Mr. King said his parish priests at St. Jude’s were a big influence on him, and he considers Pope Benedict XVI a role model. “He is a truly humble man of God. His gift of being able to articulate the faith and engage the modern world inspired me both before his election and continues to now. He sermons, letters and books have influenced the way I study theology, approach the world, and live in friendship with Christ.”

All are welcome to attend the Ordination as well as the first Mass.
