Gabriel "Bucky" DeSimone had a friendly manner that made people instantly like him — and buy life insurance from him. Out of 200,000 Prudential agents, he was seventh in overall sales one year. Bucky did well for himself, but he also used his easygoing charm and instant likeability for the good of others. Bucky and his wife Jean loved ballroom dancing and often entertained nursing home residents with their skill on the dance floor. Bucky and Jean also danced in the lounges of the Atlantic City casinos. There, when the musicians took their breaks, Bucky would sidle up to them and start talking, and soon enough he would be talking about a benefit he was organizing. Consequently, many professional casino entertainers spent their days off playing for Catholic nursing home residents. Bucky was devoted to Our Lady's Multi-Care in Pleasantville, where he got to know the residents and staff while his mother lived there. He volunteered at the facility and chaired the building committee which funded improvements and an expansion. He served as president of the St. Thomas Aquinas Holy Name Society and was a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Serra Club. He was a Eucharistic Minister and lector of Our Lady Star of the Sea Church in Atlantic City, and he made an annual retreat in Malvern, Pa., for more than 50 years. And he and Jean, who were married for 62 years, were regulars at the Diocesan Wedding Anniversary Mass. Born in South Philadelphia, Bucky secured a federal grant to help build a drug rehabilitation center there. He also ran the South Philadelphia Lions Club Little League for many years. Like many other local Catholics who have been profiled in this 75th anniversary series, Bucky not only served the church in a notable way, but he felt privileged to do so. He was a World War II veteran who took part in the D-Day invasion of Normandy. He died Aug. 18, 2009, at the age of 84.

A year and a half later, he was installed as Bishop of Beaumont, Texas, and in 2000 he became coadjutor bishop of Dallas. On April 30, 2004, he became the seventh bishop of the Diocese of Camden.

A concert featuring liturgical musician and composer David Haas will raise funds to benefit school communities in the Diocese of Camden on Friday, Jan. 25. Performing alongside Haas is cantor and composer Lori True. The concert will take place at 7:30 p.m. at Christ our Light Catholic Community in Cherry Hill. The following morning, Haas and True will lead a music workshop from 8:30 a.m. to noon in the same venue on the role of the laity in the church post Vatican II. The workshop is open to the public. Haas has authored a vast amount of familiar liturgical music and is a prominent name in contemporary hymnals. Some of his well-known titles include, "We Are Called," "You Are Mine," "We Have Been Told" and "Blest Are They." Together with True, he performs across the country and leads a summer program for young musicians called Music Ministry Alive. "Our family has been inspired by the music of David Haas for years," said concert organizer Patricia Gardner. "We wanted to share that with the diocese, and at the same time use this opportunity to serve an important cause." All proceeds of the concert and workshop will benefit the Hurricane Sandy Assistance Program, a fund developed by the Diocese of Camden in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. Though some parochial schools were physically damaged, the bulk of the storm's impact was inflicted on diocesan families, said Nicholas Regina, executive director of Catholic Schools for the Diocese of Camden. The goal of the fund is to help families keep their children in diocesan schools and "weather the very difficult couple of months after the storm as they get back on their feet," Regina said. This means providing assistance with everything from winter coats to tuition in communities, such as Atlantic City and other coastal towns, where some families lost everything, he said. Members of the Camden Catholic High School liturgical and select choir will perform alongside Haas and True in the concert on several of the duo's original compositions. Director of the liturgical choir, Nancy Werner-Kaiser, said she is excited for the students to have not only a musical but spiritual experience alongside the prominent musicians. "The cool thing about this kind of gathering is...the people who come love the music and they sing their hearts out," she said. "You'll leave there walking on air."

This year St. Andrew the Apostle Parish will celebrate its Jubilee Year leading to the 50th anniversary of the parish. On Feb. 9, 1963, Archbishop Celestine J. Damiano directed that Gibbsboro and the greater portion of Voorhees Township would become a parish under the patronage of St. Andrew the Apostle. On June 28, 1963, a 15 acre tract along Kresson-Gibbsboro Road was purchased to serve as the future site of the Church of St. Andrew. Msgr. Louis A. Marucci, St. Andrew's seventh pastor, states, "Since 1963, our parish has continued to grow in size, diversity and vibrancy as we welcome new members to our parish family. I invite all to join us as we celebrate the very special events that have been planned to celebrate our Jubilee Year." To coincide with Pope Benedict XVI's proclamation of the "Year of Faith," St. Andrew the Apostle Parish will also celebrate a year of Faith and Renewal beginning this month and concluding on the feast of St. Andrew on Nov. 30, 2013. The theme is "Celebrating Christ Yesterday & Today." Msgr. Marucci said he hopes that the community will take advantage of these "opportunities for true discipleship as we strive to live out our mission to live in God's peace through prayer, worship, education and Christian fellowship." The parish recently published and distributed a 36 page "Parish Jubilee Booklet" that highlights the liturgical, spiritual and social events that have been planned. All are welcome to attend any event. Information about the jubilee events is available on St. Andrew the Apostle's new parish website: www.ChurchofStAndrews.org To receive a copy of the Parish Jubilee Booklet please write to St. Andrew the Apostle Parish, 27 Kresson-Gibbsboro Road, Gibbsboro, NJ 08026 or call the parish at 856-784-3878. Jubilee events include Biblical Institute, Mass in honor of St. Gerard Majella, Church Chat Sessions, Lenten Renewal, Small Faith Communities, Mardi Gras Celebration, St. Joseph's Table Feast, pilgrimages to the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel (Hammonton) The Wedding of the Sea (Atlantic City), and to the Holy Land.

Lent is the 40-day season of penance in preparation for the celebration of the redemption of the human race by Jesus Christ. Lent begins Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13, and ends on Thursday, March 28, followed by the Sacred Triduum, March 28-30 and Easter Sunday, March 31. 1. The days of both Fast and Abstinence during Lent are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The other Fridays of Lent are days of Abstinence. On a day of Fast, only one (1) full meal is permitted. Those between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast. On a Day of Abstinence, no meat may be eaten. Those who have reached the age of 14 are obliged by the law of abstinence. 2. The obligation to observe the laws of Fast and Abstinence "substantially," or as a whole is a serious obligation. 3. The Fridays of the year, outside of Lent, are designated as days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the traditional abstinence from meat some other practice of voluntary self-denial as penance. 4. The time for fulfilling the Paschal Precept (Easter Duty) extends from the First Sunday of Lent, Feb. 17, to the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity, May 26, 2013.

Blazon: Arms impaled. Dexter: Sable, three Latin crosses bottony Or, debruised at base with as many elephants' heads erased Argent; in chief a crescent of the last. Sinister: Azure, upon a saltair Gules fimbriated Argent, a windmill of the last charged with two swords in saltair Or; within the quarters to chief The Holy Spirit at flight Proper, to dexter a trefoil Vert fimbriated Or, to sinister a tower or the last and to base a chalice of the last beneath a broken host of the third. Significance: The episcopal heraldic achievement, or bishop's coat of arms, is composed of a shield, with its charges (symbols), a motto scroll and the external ornaments. The shield, which is the central and most important feature of any heraldic device, is described (blazoned) in the 12th century terms, that are archaic to our modern language, and this description is done as if being given by the bearer with the shield being worn on the arm. Thus, it must be remembered, where it applies, that the terms dexter and sinister are reversed as the device is viewed from the front. By heraldic tradition, the arms of the bishop of a diocese, called the "Ordinary," are joined to the arms of his jurisdiction, seen in the dexter impalement (left side) of the shield. In this case, these are the arms of the Diocese of Camden. These arms are composed of a black field on which are placed three silver elephants' heads, which are arms derived from the arms of Charles Pratt, First Earl of Camden and Lord Chancellor of England, and for whom the See City is named. In 1773, Jacob Cooper, a descendant of William Cooper, laid out a town and named it for Lord Camden in commemoration of his friend, as a strong defender of American colonial rights. Three golden crosses accompany the elephants' heads, in honor of the Blessed Trinity and it affords a "difference" to make the shield peculiar to the Diocese of Camden. Above the conjoined elephant heads and crosses is a silver crescent to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in her title of the Immaculate Conception, titular of the Cathedral Church in Camden. For his personal arms, seen in the sinister impalement (right side) of the shield, His Excellency, Bishop Sullivan, has retained the design that was adopted at the time of his selection to receive the fullness of Sacred Orders as he became Auxiliary Bishop of New York. The field of Bishop's design is blue to honor our Most Holy Mother, Mary. Upon the field is placed a red saltair ("X") that is outlined (fimbriated) in silver (white) and which is charged with a silver windmill. The red saltair on a silver field is known as a "Cross of Saint Patrick," to honor the titular of the Cathedral Church of the Archdiocese of New York and the saltair is charged with a silver windmill recalling the earliest heritage of the area that New York was originally known as New Amsterdam. Overall, at the center of the design are two golden swords also per saltair, to represent that the dominant charges in the Sullivan and Hayes family designs is a sword and that by using these charges, His Excellency honors the heritage that has come to him from his parents, John J. and Hanorah (Hayes) Sullivan. In the quarters of the design that are formed by the saltair, to chief is a representation of the Holy Spirit, taken from the arms of His Excellency's ordaining prelate, His Eminence Cardinal Egan, to signify that in ministry all is done under the leadership of the Holy Spirit. To the left of the design (dexter) is a green shamrock, outlined in gold, to honor Bishop Sullivan's Irish heritage, and to the right (sinister) is a golden tower to honor the Bishop's particular patron, Saint Teresa of Avila. In base is a golden chalice with a broken silver (white) host above. This representation is the central mystery of Catholicism, the Most Holy Eucharist, joins with His Excellency's motto, "In the Breaking of the Bread," taken from Saint Luke's account of the disciples meeting Jesus on the road to and at Emmaus, represents that it is in communion with one another and with our Divine Lord, that all faith and all faith-based actions find their meaning and purpose. The device is completed with the external ornaments which are a gold processional cross, which is placed in back of the shield and which extends above and below the shield, and a pontifical hat, called a "gallero," with its six tassels, in three tows, on either side of the shield, all in green. These are the heraldic insignia of a prelate of the rank of bishop by instruction of the Holy See of March 31, 1969. Artwork and description prepared by Deacon Paul J. Sullivan, Permanent Deacon of the Diocese of Providence.
