Fr. Steven Bell, CSP is the newest member of the priesthood of the Paulist Fathers.
Fr. Steven spent a summer with us at BustedHalo.com and is a delight to be around.
A coalition of singers from St Augstine's and St Joseph's parish joined the Paulists and their collaborators for a most joyful celebration. The ceremony was filled with the style of African-American culture…from the lectors who enlivened the word to the outstanding choir…this was a celebration that allowed us to believe that the spirit is alive and that Jesus is truly present!
Special thanks to Archbishop O'Brien the Archbishop of Baltimore for being there for the new Fr. Steven. As he said, "I feel the spirit here today!" Indeed.
