Although Bishop Joseph Potocnak, a member of the US Province, and has been retired for many years, he continues his ministry as a chaplain at a veteran’s hospital in Florida near the Sacred Heart Community in Pinellas Park. Bishop Joe was in South Africa for most of his active ministry and served as bishop of De Aar from 1992 until his retirement in 2009.
Many of our retired SCJs stay active even at an age when most people don’t venture out of their homes too much. Truly, Bishop Joe embodies the Dehonian spirit to “get out of the sacristy and go to the people!”
Let the Priests of the Sacred Heart pray for your loved ones and intentions.
