Retired Priest

“I’ve worn many hats in my lifetime - I taught at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary for 20 years, I was a pastor at St. Charles Parish in Bensalem for 15 years, I’ve been a chaplain and fulfilled other roles too. I came to Villa St. Joseph about 4 years ago when I officially retired at 75 years old. The Villa has a wonderful spiritual program, there is also a lot of fraternity with my brother priests, and there’s a nice social climate here - football pools, and special events. The entire staff is wonderful, they could not be more caring, we are all well looked after. All the residents here are priests who have served in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia - served the people and served the Lord. The priests who are here, in my opinion, are very versatile men - they served in a variety of appointments and assignments all over the Archdiocese. I THINK TO SUPPORT THE CATHOLIC CHARITIES APPEAL IS A VERY NICE WAY OF SAYING ‘THANK YOU’ TO THE RETIRED PRIESTS.

– Monsignor Francis Carbine, retired priest
