  • Local Catholics reflect on attending Encuentro
    I was privileged to be part of the five-member delegation from the Diocese of Albany to the National V Encuentro, held Sept. 20-23 in Gaylord, Tx. We joined more than 3,000 Hispanic ministry leaders who participated in the event, representing 159 dioceses and national Catholic organizations and groups.
  • Understanding trauma
    I recently attended some training on “trauma-informed care.” It was quite eye-opening.
  • Missionary who is native of Diocese celebrates St. Romero in El Salvador
    The canonization of Óscar Arnulfo Romero, martyred archbishop of San Salvador, was a true fiesta in the rural parish of Monte San Juan, El Salvador, where I work as a Maryknoll lay missioner.
  • Orthodox monasticism in America saw a rise in parish awareness and support in the middle of the 20th century, though it is still not as well-known or visible as monasticism to pre-Vatican II Catholics. Monasticism comes somewhat out of the “old world” ethos still held by many enthusiastic New World converts.
  • A mighty tree
    Parishioners and residents of Glens Falls are used to seeing the huge tree next to St. Mary’s rectory on Warren Street as they pass by our parish.
