Ministry: December 2004 Archives

It had to happen! Here's a new Internet service: if you want to have a Mass said, but are too busy to run down to the parish or send a request in the mail, the Conventual Franciscans will help you out, accepting your Mass intentions over the net and the stipend by PayPal or credit card. Just click to get those graces moving!

Is it a promotion or....?


Msgr. Michael Bransfield, the long-time rector of Washington, D.C.'s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception was named a few days ago to become the new bishop of the diocese of Wheeling and Charleston: that is to say, all of West Virginia.

A friend who grew up there warns that the place takes some getting used to: "Do you think he has an opinion on using moonshine for altar wine -- yet? I don't remember seeing that at the Shrine!"

Anyway, we here at Catholic Light wish the Bishop-elect all the best.

What? Who?

On life and living in communion with the Catholic Church.
