And Many More


Just one clarification with this line in the letter “Not Up to Par” (CNY, Sept. 24). “…the huge NY Archdiocese ordained three or four priests this year —not one of whom grew up here...” The writer obviously is unaware of the numerous priests of the archdiocese who arrived here as teens and young adults, also not one of whom grew up here, from places like Italy, Ireland, Poland and Germany, to name just a few. They come these days from different origins and countries and we welcome them…and hopefully many more.
