Hipolito Lagares

Date of Ordination: March 15, 1997
Current Assignment: Parish of All Saints, Millville

A few years ago I was very fortunate to work with Father Robert Yori, who went with the Lord on February 15, 2014 and also Father Al Hewitt at the Spanish Catholic Center in Vineland. It was Father Yori who asked me about joining the first Diocesan class for Deacons in our Diocese. But I was not able because of my age. Later on I kept the idea in mind and enrolled in classes and completed the training. Father Yori and Father Hewitt’s priestly life were a great influence in my life and journey of faith. I’m very grateful to them and to my family for their encouragement and support. Super grateful to my parish for their prayers. This is a “Camino” which with God’s help I will keep walking.
