Join Father Mike Cruickshank CSP for a panel discussion with senior Paulist Fathers about the aspects of aging and ministry. Garner insights about the importance of community, the reality of loss, and growing in wisdom. Panelists are Father Bill Edens CSP, Father Charlie Brunick CSP, and Father Joachim Lally CSP.
Fr. Mike Cruickshank, CSP is one of the two newest Paulist priests. He was ordained in 2021 and assigned to the Cathedral of Saint Andrews as an associate pastor. He’s still learning the ropes every day and trying to soak up the wisdom of his old(er) brother Paulists.
Fr. Bill Edens, CSP has been a Paulist priest for over 40 years and is an associate pastor at the Cathedral of Saint Andrew. He is also currently pursuing a certificate in Spiritual Listening. He has a way of energizing those around him, and when it’s not too frigid outside, he enjoys long bike rides.
Fr. Charlie Brunick, CSP is in Senior Ministry here in Grand Rapids and has been a Paulist priest for almost 52 years. An avid historian, he educates his fellow Paulists around the dinner table about the community’s history. He also keeps busy with lots of long walks. An average day is 15,000 steps and a good day is 20,000 steps.
Fr. Joachim Lally, CSP is in Senior Ministry here in Grand Rapids and has been a priest for almost 57 years. His humor and contemplative spirit bring life to those around him. When he’s not in the Dominican Republic on a mission trip, he’s playing golf and helping at the Cathedral Clothing Center.
