I know all of our lives have changed radically over the last few days.
Here in New York City, like many urban communities, we are all in lockdown. To the best of our ability, some of us are attempting to work from home. Modern technology is helping me and Msgr. Peter Vaccari — CNEWA’s vice president, who shares a residence with me — to stay in touch with you.
That also makes it possible, of course, for you to be in touch with us, especially as it relates to the next point I want to share with you.
Msgr. Vaccari and I are blessed to have a small chapel in our residence here in New York City, during our self-quarantine, where we offer Mass each day for our supporters and beneficiaries. I invite you to share some of your personal needs that we could include in those liturgies. Is there a special intention you would like us to remember? Please let us know! Send your prayer intentions to us at the email address below, and Msgr. Vaccari and I will be privileged to include them in the daily sacrifice of the Mass.
It is one small way we can stay connected to members of our CNEWA family and still exercise our ministry as priests, even while we are all living in quarantine.
I look forward to hearing from you and praying for your intentions. Please pray for me, Msgr. Vaccari and all the people in CNEWA’s world, too.
May God’s grace help us all through these challenging times and may he bless you and those you love.
