MULTI ETHNIC REGIONAL MISSION IN PERTH AMBOY
Since Saturday, Oct 15th I have been part of a "regional intra parish mission" by the Roman Catholic diocese of Metuchen here in Perth Amboy, NJ. I am working in the parish of St. Marys which is, as is most of this town 80% hispanic. Most, if not all, of the hispanics are from the Dominican Republic. Many families have spent nearly 40 years here in Perth Amboy. Since I spent close to all of my 32 years in the Caribbean working in the DR I am enjoying preaching the Word of God to my "old and new friends". The two pictures here are of me visiting various homes where there are sick people. I thank Ramón, Deac. Barsilio and Rubén as well as Juan and Ramona for helping me find and visit the sick.
