An interesting—and edifying—evening.
Here in the Archdiocese of Santa Fe—as in many other dioceses around the U.S.—we have quite a number of non-native-born priests—from Vietnam, Mexico and Latin America, Spain, and Africa, to name just a few places of origin (not even to mention myself, originally from Texas, which sort of counts. And, by the way: I ain’t got no accent; it’s y’all that talk funny! 😉
Anyway … I attended a dinner hosted by our Nigerian priests the other evening, and a most enjoyable evening it was. It wasn’t so much the food they had prepared (though it was quite
The sound of brass instruments playing Christmas carols is a staple this time of year. When those instruments are tubas and euphoniums, the sound has a more mellow character.

The holiday season is synonymous with spending money – but for more than just buying gifts.
According to Nonprofits Source, hundreds of millions of dollars are raised for charity on Giving Tuesday alone, which is just a fraction of the billions of dollars Americans donate each year.
In a recent study, financial technology company SmartAsset dug into IRS data to find the places where residents were giving the most. The study measured how much people donate as a percentage of their net income and the proportion of people in a given county who make charitable donations.

During this time of year, in preparation for Christmas we Catholics read in Mass the Gospels referring to John the Baptist, who preached two major themes: repentance from evil, and producing good fruits of a good life—works of charity.

The Bell: The bell and sign still stand in front of the bookshop. Today, the shop is manned by employees and volunteers so you probably won’t need to ring the bell for service. The old worn sign and bell are reminders of operation over 40 years ago when Winifred
