Fr Andrew O'Connor.jpgInteresting people come from the Elm City! The New Haven native who’s also a Catholic priest, Father Andrew O’Connor, of the Archdiocese of New York, designs clothes, provides jobs in two countries and continues to preach the Gospel.

Nice to see Mary Alice & Charles’ son in the media!

Remembered in Rome by Archbishop Dolan

alg_dolan-mta.jpgArchbishop Timothy Dolan is serious: he’s praying for ALL the people of the Archdiocese of New York (and others) when he’s in the Eternal City next week to receive the pallium from the Pope. He’s the link between us and our Roman sainted forefathers and mothers; likewise, he’s the link between the archdiocese and the Holy Father. Spiritual closeness is a cool thing in the Catholic Church.

Thank God for his remembrance of us at the tombs of Saints Peter and Paul especially! I, for one, need his prayers.
