My wife, Debbie, and I have been members of St. Bernard for over 20 years. We have three children –  Carmella and her husband Chris,  our oldest Ian and his wife, Angela and Luke, who is our youngest. It was with great pleasure that I presided at both Ian and Angela’s wedding and at Carmela and Chris’ as well.  I was also privileged to baptize my son, Luke, 15 years ago.

After 30 years practicing law as a private attorney and a State’s prosecutor I retired in 2003.  Hallelujah!!!!

I was ordained a deacon 16 years ago and have been assigned to St. Bernard ever since.  My diaconate ministry has been very enjoyable and fulfilling.  In addition to performing baptisms, weddings, prayer services and assisting and preaching at mass, I am on the parish Stewardship Council and facilitate both our baptism preparation program and our welcoming program for new parishioners, known as New Beginnings, New Friends.  I also take communion to the local senior residences and periodically drive the SHIP truck which brings hot meals to the less fortunate.

It’s hard to choose, but I’d say the parts of my ministry I enjoy the most are probably marriage preparation of couples for their wedding and meeting young couples through my baptism preparation ministry. I can be reached by e-mail at gcsims@msn.com or by calling 908-725-3288.
