Saint of the Day: St. Hildegard of Bingen

In Massachusetts this weekend? Stop by and say ‘hi!’

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 12/08/16

Your humble blogger will be at The National Shrine of Our Lady of LaSalette in Attleboro, Massachusetts Saturday morning. I’m traveling there on behalf of CNEWA, along with my colleague Christopher Kennedy, to give a presentation on the plight of Christians and other minorities in the Middle East and what CNEWA is doing on their behalf.

I’m looking forward to the visit—and seeing once again my old friend Fr. Ted Brown, whom I knew when he was chaplain at C.W. Post Long Island University here on Long Island.

Our presentation starts at 9 a.m. and should be done by 11. I’ll also be preaching the noon Mass. Stop by and say “hi!” Then, stay to see the amazing lights. They are legendary.
