The Diocese of Brooklyn commissioned 65 new lay leaders from 34 parishes at a bilingual Mass at St. Nicholas of Tolentine Church, Jamaica. The night was also a celebration of the years of service that catechists and ministers devoted to the Diocese of Brooklyn. Special recognition was given to Sister Alice Michael, S.U.S.C., for her 40 years of service to the diocese.
Saul of Tarsus, whose conversion to the faith we celebrated on Jan. 25, is a fascinating man. We can learn many things from his life and conversion, most especially that it’s okay to be human, provided we allow grace to build upon our human nature.
