The One who has Hope Lives (and Dies) Differently

A talk about end of life issues. Sun, Jul 19, 12:30-2pm, O’Sullivan Room
‘The advance of modern medicine enables us to live longer, healthier lives. We are grateful for the life-saving treatments now available to so many people. But with improved medical technology comes challenges. We want to respect life, but fear prolonging a painful or expensive dying process. In times of serious illness or imminent death, we are called upon to make wise choices about whether to initiate, continue or even discontinue life-sustaining treatment. We might need to make such decisions for ourselves or for loves ones. These can be among the most complete and difficult decisions of our lives.” [Excerpt from Comfort and Consolation, A Pastoral letter from the Catholic bishops of Maryland]

Meet our New Pastor and Parochial Vicar!

Our new Pastor, Msgr. Kevin Hart
Msgr. Hart’s earliest years were spent in New Jersey across the river from Manhattan, and from the age of nine in Southeast DC, where he tried in vain to lose his NJ accent. He attended Holy Name elementary school in Northeast and Cathedral Latin High School in downtown DC.  He attended St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA.  A junior-year abroad in Belgium turned into five more years at the American College Seminary in Louvain.  His first assignment after ordination brought him back to Southeast at St. Francis Xavier on Pennsylvania Avenue SE.  After working in the Religious Education Office of the Archdiocese and residing at Our Lady of Mercy in Potomac, Msgr. Hart pursued a doctorate in canon law at the Angelicum University in Rome.
Subsequent assignments in diocesan administration and the Tribunal brought him to St. Patrick’s in the City, St. Stephen Martyr, Our Lady Star of the Sea in Solomons Island, and St. Margaret of Scotland in Seat Pleasant.  His first pastorate was St. Mary Piscataway in Clinton, then at St. Ann in Tenleytown DC, and St. Patrick, Rockville. Msgr. spent the past year and a half as Senior Advisor to the Cardinal for Central Administration with residence at St. Andrew in Silver Spring. He particularly enjoyed ministering in the Catholic Schools in all of those parishes and looks forward to doing the same at St. Peter’s.
Msgr. is looking forward to returning to full-time pastoral ministry at St. Peter’s. He enjoys cooking, reading, relaxing at the beach but particularly playing the piano. He is praying that his 7’ Steinway grand will successfully negotiate the 29 steps to his new residence on July 2!


And our new Parochial Vicar, Fr. Vincent De Rosa
Father Vincent De Rosa was born in Glen Cove, New York. He attended public primary school and Catholic High School. Studies brought him to Washington where he received a degree in International Affairs and History from the George Washington University. There, he discerned his call to the priesthood at the Newman Catholic Student Center. It was also there that Father discovered a love for young adult ministry. During university studies, Father also worked on Capitol Hill for the US Association of Former Members of Congress as a Program Manager.  
After undergraduate studies, Fr. De Rosa entered seminary for the Archdiocese of Washington.  He studied philosophy at Mount Saint Mary, and Theology in Rome (STB - Angelicum, STL in Moral Theology - Santa Croce). He was ordained a priest June 14, 2008. Over the last several years he has been assigned as parochial vicar at St. Bernadette in Silver Spring, Holy Redeemer in College Park, and St. Peter in Olney. He has also served as Chaplain to the St. Thomas More Society of Washington, and several Knights of Columbus Councils.  
Father De Rosa’s interests include travel, hiking, cooking, orchestral music, art, and theater. Father is also an amateur blogger, publishing reflections and some homilies on his website: www.eyesoffaithdc.com
