Dear Friend of Bethlehem,
HAPPY NEW YEAR .This is a special year for me. 60 years ago I graduated from High School and 50 years ago I was ordained a priest and was sent to Taiwan. I have had a happy and fruitful experience living and working in Taiwan and now there will be some time to celebrate. On May 2nd I will attend my High School’s reunion and on June 21 to the 23rd I will attend a Jubilee celebration at Maryknoll, N.Y. So I will be leaving Taiwan in late April and returning in late June. I will also get a health check up while in the U.S. and visit with my family members and friends. I am sure my sister Genevieve will have a special family gathering at her home in Cheshire, Connecticut. Besides Maryknoll will have a huge Gathering of Maryknollers from all over the world in mid May for a week of reflections and planning for the future. While I am gone the staff of Bethlehem will continue our work helping infants and children with a developmental delay in an inclusive educational environment.
May God bless you and your family members in gratitude for your support for our work. Thank you very much.
