3 Page Three St. Charles Borromeo Church July 3, 2016 A Day of Joy by Clara Fox Excerpted from an article appearing in The Tidings, June 10, 2016 On June 4, when Father Jeffrey Baker, 31, was ordained a priest with the laying on of hands, his father, Deacon Ron Baker, and mother, Patti, were at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels to share in the special moment, overjoyed to have a son become a priest. I m just in such awe, Patti told The Tidings. I m so blessed to have a husband [become] a deacon and now a son [become] a priest. Father Baker said his first Mass at Holy Family on June 5, with his father assisting during the service. His mother was in attendance. The day before the event, she said, I won t even have a dry eye the whole Mass. Deacon Ron said of having a son become a priest, It s kind of a surreal feeling, and I m so honored. Having a priest for a son when you are a deacon is helpful, he added, even though they still have that father-son dynamic. He s helped me, and I ve helped him with sermons, with different pastoral things within the parishes. He continued, We were deacons together and now it s going to be different because he is going to be the priest and I m going to be the deacon. It s going to be a joyful experience. We re looking forward to it. Deacon Ron stressed the need for Catholic parents to encourage their children when they are discerning a vocation, while still being open to the possibility that their children could change their mind. You need to be encouraging and supportive, but they always have to know that during their journey their discernment if they change their mind, then that is OK, because you don t want that pressure during formation, he said. During the whole time of his formation, my wife and I told him that we support him and we pray for him. Father Baker will serve as an associate pastor at St. Charles Borromeo in North Hollywood. While his parents plan to make trips to hear him preach occasionally, they will continue at their current parish. We are going to let him do his thing, Deacon Ron said. So he doesn t feel that his parents are checking up on him. Although a priest having a deacon for a father is a rare occurrence, they aren t the only ones in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. One other family has the same situation and, although they aren t related, they share the same last name. We always make a joke that it must be the Baker name, Deacon Ron said of Deacon Chuck and Marge Baker, whose son, Father Tom Baker at Sacred Heart Church in Lancaster, was his son s intern pastor. Archbishop José H. Gomez said during his homily, This is a day of joy. Every priest is the face of Christ and the heart of Christ. Towards the end of the Mass, Archbishop Gomez added, I want to especially congratulate their parents and family for the vocation and ordination today. Thank you for your generosity and please keep praying for them, as we do, too. After the ordination Mass, the new priests gave their first public blessings to family, friends and members of their parish communities in the cathedral plaza. While Deacon Ron and Patti waited in line for a blessing from their son, Patti said, It s the most special time of our life other than our wedding and the birth of our children.

Parents should teach their children about swimming safety, including how to identify and handle uncomfortable situations. Although you may be watching closely to make sure your kids are safe in the water, don t forget about when they re walking around, sitting out by the pool, using the restrooms or out of sight.
