Over 100 alumni of the St. Mary's School of Sagada in the Philippines honored the memory of the Rt. Rev. Charles Henry Brent in his home town of Newcastle, Ontario, on August 9. The occasion marking the school's centennial drew alumni from as far away as the Philippines where Bishop Brent founded several schools for Filipino children.
The Most Reverend Terence Finlay, the retired Bishop of Toronto was the celebrant and preacher. He was assisted by con-celebrators the Rt. Rev. Michael Bedford-Jones and the Rt. Rev. Benjamin Botengan of the Central Diocese of the Philippines. The service incorporated the language of North Kankanay where Sagada is located, and the school's alumni sang several hymns in their dialect.
For the past two years the diocese has held a service in October at the Diocesan Ministry Center in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The service has been held on or near the feast of St. Luke the physician. This October, the diocese is expanding this idea in a new direction.
“I want to connect the diocese to things happening in the Western New York region,” says Bishop Franklin. “And one of the important new developments is the ongoing expansion of the medical corridor in downtown Buffalo. And while the medical corridor is located in Buffalo, this focus on health care is something that is likely to have positive effects in the years to come across all of Western New York. Health and well being is also a topic that touches all of our lives.
Our pets are special to us. They are always there to greet you at the end of a long day. They’re the best friend you need to snuggle with when you are feeling down. That's why we buy gifts for them on Christmas and take them along on vacations. Because when you own a pet, you think of them as one of your family.
Imagine now that you are unable to care for your pets as well as you had been in the past. For some reason you can not pay for the food they need or basic healthcare. Wouldn't it kill you to see your pet suffer and not be able to help?
