SIXTH TUESDAY: hearts, forever!
Living Faith
St. Anthony, you carried out the daily responsibilities

Our Pastor
Fr. Anthony R. Lipari, FCM
Raised in Jersey City and Hasbrouck Heights, NJ, Fr. Anthony Lipa-
ri was a High School and College Educator before being ordained a
Priest in 1989, and has served in many Northern New Jersey Church-
es, Chaplain to Organizations and Clubs, and as Chaplain to Police,
Fire and EMS Departments for many years. He is a noted advocate
for Spirituality within the Health Care Environment, Youth Ministry,
HIV/AIDS Ministry, and Religious Education, and also provides Spir-
itual Direction and Guidance for Bereavement concerns. In addition
Fr. Anthony has a Masters Degree in Pastoral Ministry in the subject
area of adolescent suicide and prevention. His Doctorate Degree is
in Pastoral Ministry.

He was incardinated into the American National Catholic Church and

entered the Franciscan Community of Mercy. I come to Good
Shepherd ANCC not just with my syllabus of achievements, but with
my faith, heart and smile. He brings to the parish a refreshing,
spiritual and hopeful outlook.

Associate Pastor: Fr. Drew Miller

Born and raised in Essex County, NJ, Father Andrew Miller (he prefers
"Father Drew") had a positive and wonderful childhood and adolescence
surrounded by a loving family, nuns and priests. He was inspired in his
High School years by the Search Program and was educated at Seton Hall
University feeling a yearning for studies of spirituality and psycholo-
gy while continuing working for his family's printing company.

He entered the Seminary and thoroughly enjoyed his studies, retreats, and
encountering God through prayer, silence, and in the vibrancy of life itself.
Ordained a Diocesan Priest, he served in Bayonne and truly enjoyed being
a priest while also struggling with the Roman Church's requirement of
celibacy. Taking a Leave of Absence, Fr. Drew completed more studies to
become a Marriage and Family Therapist and has served in that capacity
for over 23 years of private practice.

He feels that God calls him to be an instrument in building the Kingdom in

the individual lives and marriages of his clients. He is married to Lorna and has a Daughter. He truly experiences
the Divine in the midst of people who are in crisis or in their frustration with organized religion. Priestly Ministry
is a great joy for him and he feels inspired by the welcoming atmosphere of the American National Catholic
Church. Being an Associate Priest at Good Shepherd truly resonates with him and he has proven to be a wonder-
ful asset to all that he ministers to.
