Bishop-elect Lucia: ‘I am here to serve the people of the Diocese of Syracuse’

The future Bishop of Syracuse, Father Douglas J. Lucia, recalled at a morning press conference announcing his appointment the words inscribed on the chalice gifted to him at his ordination in 1989: “Ordained to God’s Service.” “These words have been a beacon for the past 30 years of my priestly ministry and they set the stage for the next part of the journey with you. I am here to serve the people of the Diocese of Syracuse, Catholic and non-Catholic alike,” he said.
