New Assignment

As regular H.A. readers know, I am leaving Rome and heading back to the U.S. for reassignment.

I will be serving the Good Folks of St. Dominic's Church in New Orleans, LA as parochial vicar.

This assignment will be very good for my preaching. . .and very bad for my waistline.  Oy.

Leaving Rome on Dec. 7th.

Pray for us all, please!

  1. Okay so what you are saying is pray harder for you to receive the Miter.

  2. Jason, um, no...definitely, no. I'm too lazy to be a good bishop.

    I live in New Orleans. Your bitter, vicious, divisive, un-Christian politics are not welcome here.

    It will be interesting to see how your prejudices thrive in our city.

    It will be interesting for your parishoners to know that you wish the British founder of the racist IPUK party was president of the United States.

  4. Thanks, Anon! I'll try and do better by following your charitable example.

    Thanks for welcoming me to NOLA with such Christian warmth and hospitality.

  5. Looks as if you will have your work cut out!
    We'd all better increase the prayers.
    I think I can see why God is sending you . . .

    Father, I live in New Orleans too. Please ignore grumpy "Anonymous's" in-you-face incivility: it's is utterly uncharacteristic of New Orleans (just too hot here to sustain that level of indignation for long). You are very welcome, and I hope we'll get a chance to meet.

    The late Fr. Vic Celio OP was a popular visiting priest at our parish, St. Patrick's. As soon as you settle in, please come for a visit.
