“The religious sisters and brothers serving our diocese provide dedicated and loving service to us in schools, parishes and other ministries, and it brings me great joy to celebrate them as they celebrate these milestones of service and conclude the year in which we had an opportunity to express our thanks for their ministry among us,” Tucson Bishop Gerald F. Kicanas wrote in his weekly memo to the diocese.
