Cape May 2 Welcomes Newly Ordained Preist
Timothy McGuire was Ordained to the Priesthood May 19, 2012 By Archbishop Charles J Chaput, O.F.M.Cap. at the Cathedral Basilica of Saint Peter and Paul Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Tim is the nephew of Cape May 2 member John Hockenberry and could not wait until his studies ended so he could become a Division member.
Another truly amazing item about our faith and how the Lord chooses us comes from Tim’s mother:
“When Tim was praying for guidance to the vocation he was at Star of the Sea in Cape May and a raffle was going outside the church and a Sister asked him if he was a priest… divine intervention from Cape May County even before he had made his decision to join the priesthood! He is meant to be a part of Cape May county and a priest and apart of the Irish world since birth.”
On June 4th 2012, newly ordained Father Tim was sworn into the Hibernians by Division president, Patrick Jockel. Tim’s cousin, Eric Dolch, and the son of the Division President, Kenny Jockel were also sworn in on the same night. Cape May 2 division brothers showed up in kilts to help swear in their new Division brothers.
