"WELCOME TO HISPANIC FAMILIES FROM ULSTER COUNTY
Last Sunday was the Roman Catholic Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Help. I had a Day of Faith Formation for Hispanic families from all around Ulster County. The fact is that, long before I was The Hudson River Birder I have been Padre Tom Martín Deely, a Redemptorist Missionary priest. My love for birds, for wildlife...My desire to protect and care for the world's human and physical life systems is a simple outflow of my love for God and for all that and "all whom" God has made. One of my dreams for our 412 acres here at The Mount would be to see poor Hispanic families who loved to work on their farms and fields in their countries of origin...I would love to see them working small pieces of organic farm lands here on our property. BUT THIS IS ONLY A DREAM NOW...But we know that "dreams can come true.
