  • A priest among us
    By the time this column makes it to print, I will have been ordained a priest of Jesus Christ at the hands of Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger; ordained to labor beside many faithful laborers in the vineyard of God’s people until my death.
  • Ella’s solution to Saratoga parking woes
    If I were mayor, I would create better parking in downtown Saratoga. Downtown Saratoga is such a busy place full of great restaurants, beautiful shops and workplaces for many people. All year ‘round, downtown Saratoga is moving nonstop.
  • My favorite apparition is Our Lady of Guadalupe, in which the Virgin Mary appeared to Juan Diego in 1531 AD.

    (Editor’s note: Joseph is the first-place winner of Saratoga Central Catholic School’s annual St. Francis de Sales writing contest.)

  • The First World War is considered by many to be the first modern war. In the midst of this catastrophe, in 1917 in Portugal, Mary appeared to three shepherd children.

    (Editor’s note: Anne is the second-place winner of Saratoga Central Catholic School’s annual St. Francis de Sales writing contest.)

  • Another South African graduates, thanks to Albany Catholic Workers
    This is my story of success, which has seen me graduating with honors a few weeks ago in KwaNdebeqheke, South Africa, with a bachelor’s degree in nursing.
  • A graduation day reflection
    Commencement is one of the signature moments in the life of a young man or woman, and often leaves a lasting impression. The families of the graduates are delighted and undoubtedly relieved that their children have successfully completed a rite of passage.
  • A teen’s view of abortion debate
    I believe that most pro-choicers are motivated by compassion: compassion for women who are in a scary, overwhelming situation and searching for a way out. But abortion is not a way out we should ever offer. In abortion, an innocent human being is killed.
  • Hat's off to dads
    My dad would jump over the moon to keep me safe and encouraged. He’d do the same for my brother and five sisters. Between the seven of us, we have a ton of kids and grandkids. We’d jump over the moon for them, as well.
  • Interview with a new priest
    The newly-minted Father Frank D’Amato took time out of his hectic schedule to answer some of my questions, which I’m sharing with The Evangelist.
  • Pre-ordering the starvation of people with dementia
    My 95-year-old mother has severe dementia. The disease has robbed her of the ability to do so many things she used to fully appreciate in her life: plant her tomato and cucumber seeds in the garden and lovingly nurture them through the summer; read the Reader’s Digest from cover to cover every month; put on her best dress and jewelry to go to church; and never miss anyone’s birthday with a card, a handwritten note or a gift.
