New Home for Some New York Nuns

The community of Redemptoristine nuns in West Park, New York, are moving to a new convent, in a former Franciscan friary in East Rutherford, N.J. Among the ways they earn their keep is sewing ceremonial capes for the Knights and Ladies of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre.

Blog of the Week - Atonement Online

Atonement Online is the blog of the Rev. Christopher Phillips, pastor of Our Lady of the Atonement Catholic Church, the parish I attend. Father Phillips posts news about the parish and the parish school, as you might expect. But more importantly, he regularly discusses issues related to the liturgical patrimony of Anglican Use parishes and issues related to the creation of the newly-erected Personal Ordinarriate of the Chair of Saint Peter. Fr. Phillips is the founding pastor of Our Lady of the Atonement, the first Anglican Use parish, established in 1983.

Blog(s) of the Week

I have a huge list of religion blogs that I visit regularly. I'll try to regularly highlight some and add them to my blog roll. I've started it with a few already such a Aggie Catholics (the blog of the Catholic Campus Ministry at Texas A&M (a.k.a. the largest Catholic University in Texas)), Get Religion (a great look on how the media doesn't "get religion" and regularly mis-reports religion stories), and What Does the Prayer Really Say (the wonderful blog of the ineffable Father Z).

(Second) First Post!

Well, this didn't work out the first time.

I've deleted the handful of posts I did make (mostly links to other people's blogs) and decided to try to start over. Maybe this time I'll actually post regularly.

No promises.
