Features | March 15: the feast day of St. Clement Hofbauer

St. Clement Hofbauer was born Johannes Hofbauer on December 26, 1751, in Tasswitz, Moravia, the ninth child of a butcher and his wife. His father died when he was only 6 years old.

People & places | Windfall makes new lighting possible for OLPH Basilica

By Father John McKenna, C.Ss.R.

Recently the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Brooklyn got a delightful surprise, a wonderful windfall. It turned out that for a very long time we’d been paying a utility bill that wasn’t ours. The power company, Con Edison, returned a large amount of money to the parish, just at the right time, during our 125th Jubilee Year.

This this unexpected good fortune has made possible the new LED lighting now being installed [read more]
