Let’s All Talk About Catholic Education

Let’s talk about our incredible history, our relevance today, and the hope it brings for our future. Let’s talk about how Catholic education in Queens and Brooklyn is creating a “Foundation for Life” for the leaders of tomorrow.

Celebrate Shepherds Of Ordinary Times

In these weeks when spring gives way to summer, many celebrate the ordinations of new priests — new shepherds who, in these difficult days, commit the rest of their lives to the sacred service of God and the people of God.

Sharing the Diocesan Eucharistic Revival

I believe in sharing. It’s customary for me to give an update of events I have attended and my experiences attending said events with my friends, my family, my children, fellow parishioners, and anyone who would listen. 

Feeling God’s Presence At Eucharistic Revival

I belong to the St. Joseph Patron of the Universal Church Parish in Bushwick. I feel so blessed by participating in the different activities of the Eucharistic Revival 2022-2025, starting with the first activity we had with the different parishes in the area. 

The Eucharistic Revival: ‘It Was Transformative’

Just about a year ago, the Diocese of Brooklyn began conversations to plan an event that would allow the faithful to gather as a community, centered on Jesus present in the Most Blessed Sacrament. 

Devotion to St. Peregrine After Cancer Diagnosis

“You have cancer.” The dreaded words that none of us wants to hear from our doctor, and yet so many people hear them every day. Perhaps you have heard those devastating words yourself, or maybe someone you love dearly has heard them.

Faithfulness of St. Bernadette of Lourdes

On April 16, we celebrate the feast of St. Bernadette of Lourdes. The 1943 film, “The Song of Bernadette,” dramatizes the amazing events in her life relating to the Marian apparitions that occurred in Lourdes, France, in 1858. Many Catholics have enjoyed this beautiful film, and it’s a great one to share with those who haven’t seen it, especially younger generations. 

A Decades-Long Journey to Baptism

My journey to Catholicism began when I met a good-natured-looking fellow student seated next to me in my honors program at NYU 20 years ago. I was an only child from Connecticut, excited to finally be away from home and discover who I was in New York City.

Eucharistic Words for Lent: Live Out Your Mission

“Truly, nothing is more beautiful than to know Christ and to make him known to others.” These words in Pope Benedict XVI’s “Sacramentum Caritatis” echoed in my mind when watching the recently released “Cabrini.” The film captures the indomitable spirit of America’s first citizen-saint, and viewers become well-acquainted with the diminutive nun’s spunk and determination.
