Visit with Archbishop Cardone
Last week we had the joy of welcoming Archbishop Christopher Cardone, OP for a visit. Archbishop Cardone is a good friend of our community, and is Archbishop of Honiara in the Solomon Islands where he's been a missionary for the past thirty years. It is such a blessing to hear him speak of the wonderful things happening in the Islands, of the many young people taking an active part in their local churches, the native vocations to the priesthood and religious life, and the joy the people take in their faith. Amidst all the scandals rocking the Church in America, it is refreshing to hear of how the faith is thriving in the Solomon Islands.
While he was here, Archbishop Cardone blessed the 'corner'stone for our new wing (which Sr. Mary Magdalene helped the masons install a few days later). Of course, we had to give him a tour of the new wing as well!
