On Sunday, May 29, 2016, St. Bernard Church celebrated Father Perry's 40th anniversary of ordination to the priesthood.

Father Perry's motto has always been "Being with the people."

He did not want a fancy sit-down dinner celebration; instead, he wanted the opportunity to be with the people.

"It’s because of the people that I am the priest that I am today; therefore, I want to thank the community for the opportunity to serve them," Father Perry said.
