From Fr. Jordan

My dear parishioners,

May the Grace of Our Lord remain always with us!

Well, I made it through the move! As I sat in my room in Baltimore I thought, “I can’t do this!” But thanks to my good friend David Ifkovits and a group of parishioners the truck was packed. David and I drove from Baltimore from Providence on Tuesday. Marie Brito organized a powerful group of helpers: William and James Wert, Sophie Schmults, and Susan Gunter were awesome! The rectory is filled with boxes, but it will all get done in time.

This past Wednesday we celebrated the 4th of July, the 242nd anniversary of our independence.. Family gatherings, parades, and fireworks marked the day. Our nation is neither happy nor united. The deep political differences which mark our citizenry; the issues of life, immigration, health care, Social Security and our place as leaders of the free world are but a few of the topics that spark heated debate and divide families and friends. Let us recommend our country and our governmental leaders to God; let us beseech Him to send the fullness of the Holy Spirit upon all our elected officials.

Next weekend I have the joy of witnessing the marriage vows of two of my former students. I will be in Chicago from Thursday until Sunday. You will be in the capable care of my Dominican Brother, Fr. Michael Dominic O’Connor, O.P. Fr. Michael is a gifted musician, and is currently finishing his doctorate in Moral Theology from the Angelicum in Rome. Please welcome him.

Thank you for the very warm welcome you have given me – you are just the best!

O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to Thee!


Fr. Jordan, O.P.
