  • My taxi ride in New York City

    Recently, I concelebrated the wedding of a young man I baptized nearly 25 years ago. After the ceremony, torrential rain caused my priest-friends and me to take a cab to the reception. It turned out to be a memorable experience.

  • Come and venerate St. Elizabeth relic
    St. Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in Cohoes is inviting the Catholic community to the 100th anniversary celebration of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr.
  • Though Billy Graham was not a Catholic, I learned many things from his powerful Christian witness and preaching. As a Christian and a pastor, I learned at least 10 simple truths about him which have inspired me.
  • Remembering Billy Graham
    Relations between evangelical Protestants and Catholics can be tense. A happy exception was the 1990 Rev. Dr. Billy Graham Crusade in Albany.

    Protecting the Earth is a goal for many faith communities. Now, Catholic parishes and other congregations in the Albany Diocese are teaming up to work on environmental issues.
  • Ecumenism in the trenches
    We were getting ready to close our church building for a few months for a full interior renovation. The parish had been waiting and preparing for years, and now it was here. We would celebrate Mass in the rectory basement on weekdays and in the school gym on Sundays. We were all set!
  • Solution to a 500-year rift: healthy ecumenism
    October 31, 2017, is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation -- when, legend says, a disgruntled Augustinian monk, Martin Luther, nailed his 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany.
  • Bruderhof, Catholics promote life
    For the last four years, the Maple Ridge Bruderhof community in Ulster Park, N.Y., has had a "Celebrate Life" open house in May for our Catholic friends.
  • Assisi in Albany is celebrating its 10th anniversary. Its job counseling program is a quiet work of mercy that has been helping people find and keep good work since 2006.
