Archbishop Dolan showed up at Citi Field signing autographs and earlier visited the West Bronx Community Center in Highbridge working with Catholic Charities and the Rusty Staub Foundation in giving our free meals.
I thought with that relationship between the Archdiocese and Staub's foundation that perhaps Staub, a former Met and a Catholic, might have asked if Dolan could wear his old number. But coincidence of coincidences Dolan is the 10th Archbishop of NY.
I'd like to get this jersey and wear it to the Cathedral!
Your humble blogger is Mike Hayes, a well-known expert in the world of young adult ministry (20s and 30s) in the Catholic Church. Mike is the author of Googling God (Paulist, 2007) where he explores both the chaotic world that young people live in and their religious reactions to that world. He also explores the age of instant gratification and how churches can respond to the needs of the young adult age by using technology alongside more traditional ministry methods.
Mike founded the award winning BustedHalo.com® in 2001 and continues to contribute to it as the editor of their catechetical section appropriately named Googling God.
Recently, he left BustedHalo® to focus on more direct ministry with young people at St Joseph University Parish as a Campus Minister for the South Campus at the University at Buffalo.
He has only two loves: his adorable wife, Marion and a nine pound chihuahua named Haze, who still find him amusing enough to let them live in their home.
