When the late Father Cervoni was still alive as Pastor of st joes in Woodstown, Father Al hewitt was assistant Pastor. Father Hewitt was a full time priest at St. Joes. On top of his full time parish duties, he also had the Legion of Mary and is still active despite his age. Father Cervoni on top of his full time duties, including visiting the sick and masses on Sundays, After fulfilling his Sunday obligations, he would spend his time off visiting many various camps almost every Sunday during the Summer offering the hOly sacrifice of the Mass and holy sacraments to both the hispanic farm workers and even the farmers. After Mass, he never demanded donations and he made time for confessions. And yet he never received any award from puertican action committee
like the other part time priest who often neglected the farm workers and would not make time for confessions. There were other priests who worked full time and would visit the farm laborers too. One priest would be on vacation and make sure that he visited the farm laborers and farmers. Their reward will be in Heaven with God.
During regular sunday mass at st. joes had many stuck up ignorant people there would make fun of father hewitt because he was a stutterer. He was a holy man who was good to everyone Catholic and non Catholic. Many made fun of Father wilson because he had an accent. And yet they embraced a lukewarm perfect white new "young" pastor who spoke perfectly.
God love the priest who stutters and who is holy and good like father Al Hewitt. Recently, Father Hewitt was camden leading the Rosary rally what did any priest do in our area???
