Monsignor Buchheit’s 70th Anniversary!

(May 3rd, 2021)

Please help us celebrate his priestly vocation!

"Look at him!"

Msgr. Buchheit found his picture in the Cathedral Basilica’s bulletin!

Msgr. Buchheit and Sr. Peter Marie

The oldest priest of the Archdiocese of St. Louis and the youngest Sister at MOGCH!

Monsignor Jerome Buchheit joined our family at the Mother of Good Counsel Home earlier this year, and we are blessed to have him!

His vibrant and prayerful countenance has been an inspiration to all, and his sprightly outlook on life brings laughter and joy to our Mission partners and neighbors all around!

Monsignor has also been an inspirational example of priestly fraternity as he reaches out and speaks to the other Archdiocesan priest residing here.


The video above contains snippets from a conversation between Monsignor and Sr. Peter Marie on Holy Thursday of this year. It was the first time that Monsignor Buchheit had not been to the Chrism Mass since his Ordination in 1951. He shares advice and insight into life, prayer, and the priesthood. He especially speaks words of wisdom to current and future priests.

Whether you personally know Monsignor Buchheit or would just like to send him a congratulatory message of gratitude, we invite you to do so either through our online form, or by sending him a card at:
