My World of Religion, Politics, Entertainment and Social Issues

If you are visiting my blog, expecting to see 'Toward a Progressive Catholic Church,' I have changed my title to reflect my wide assortment of interests. Having retired from my secular job, I hope to devote the rest of my life to my hobbies, ministries and perhaps a part-time job that makes good use of my communications skills. This blog will be designed to address my multi-faceted interests.

Rev. Denise Donato's New Community

Dear Blog Visitors:

I want to take this opportunity to wish Rev. Denise Donato well with her new venture in Fairport, New York.

Denise and I were classmates at St. Bernard's School of Theology and Ministry and I predicted back then that she would prove to be an outstanding leader in the Catholic community.

Several years ago, I was proud to participate in Denise's ordination to the priesthood at Spiritus Christi Church, where she served with distinction. Denise's latest venture will give another community an opportunity to be beneficiaries of her ministerial skills.

I hope residents of Fairport, New York and beyond will visit the newly-created Mary Magdalene Church, which is utilizing worship space at the Mountain Rise UCC Church. The website for the new community is as follows:

Here is the on-line advertisement for Mary Magdalene Church:
