Over the course of the last month, Fr. Charles Bolser, CSV, has received countless emails, cards, donations, phone calls and visits from well-wishers wanting to congratulate him on his momentous jubilee. Oh, and a party or two, he adds with a smile.

Fr. Charles Bolser

This year, he celebrates 60 years of religious life, 50 years of priesthood and his 85th birthday, and to all those who reached out to him, he wanted to say thank you.

“Many, many thanks for your blessings and congratulations as I celebrate 60 years in vows as a member of the Clerics of St. Viator and 50 years ordained as a priest. I have indeed been blessed to meet so many wonderful people along the journey that we continue to share in so many diverse ways.

“I have learned that we do share the journey together – the journey of the on-going creation. I am most grateful for encountering so many who have been my teachers and guides; all actively involved in proclaiming the Good News by their lives.

“Many thanks and all blessings as we continue to walk together – united in the Spirit of the Christ that gives life to one and all.”

Charlie Bolser, C.S.V.
