    Dear Deacon, this was a blessing of a story. I am a Convert to the Catholic Faith some 20 yrs ago and will begin the 4 yr journey to become a deacon this fall. I can only dream of the priesthood. I love, support, and pray for our priests always. Fr. Shenck, we thank you.

    Dear Deacon Fournier,

    I truly enjoyed this beautiful story. I do so admire Fr. Paul Shenck for his committment to his blessed journey into Catholicism. I also admire your and his loyal and beautiful friendship. I will pray for Fr. Paul Chaim Shenck, Priest of Jesus Christ as you asked. GOD bless you and Fr. Paul Shenck and your families in the name of Jesus Christ.

    It is clearly the blessing of our Lord Jesus that a Protestant became a Catholic priest to serve God In a different way.As a Catholic priest let us hope that he will be able to bring new energy and enthusiasm into his ministry.Let us pray for his successful ministry.
