On Tuesday, December 16th, we were honored and blessed to have the The Most Reverend Dennis Joseph Sullivan visit our home in Riverside, New Jersey. Bishop Sullivan was consecrated the eighth bishop of the Diocese of Camden on February 12, 2013. Although this was Bishop Sullivan’s first pastoral visit to our home, he is very familiar with the work of Good Counsel and has supported our mission and ministry since we first opened our doors to homeless, pregnant mothers in need.
Our residents, staff, volunteers, and babies all enjoyed spending time with Bishop Sullivan, especially our newest baby girl, Jacklyn, who was born on December 6th. Jacklyn was very taken with the Bishop as he cradled her in his arms.
