Word to Life: Radio Broadcast: 33nd Sunday in Ordinary Time
November 15, 2013
This week’s broadcast is hosted by Fr. Gabriel Gillen, O.P., and Fr. Austin Litke, O.P. with Deacon Patrick Moynihan as a special guest. The readings are: 1 MAL 3:19-20A, 2 THES 3:7-12, LK 21:5-19. Deacon Patrick Moynihan serves as the President of The Haitian Project and head of its tuition-free Catholic boarding school in Haiti, Louverture Cleary School (LCS), a post he held from 1996 to 2006 and returned to in March 2009 after serving as President Emeritus in the interim. He has a degree in Classics from Brown University and an MA in Religious Studies from Providence College. He was ordained a Permanent Deacon for the Rockford Catholic Diocese (IL) in October of 2001. Before The Haitian Project, Deacon Moynihan was a futures and options trader for Louis Dreyfus Corp. Unlike St. Francis, the saint who inspired his conversion and entry into missionary work, Deacon Moynihan’s family has supported his efforts since day one. His older brother, Brian Moynihan (CEO of Bank of America), was Chair of The Haitian Project prior to him joining in 1996. It was Brian who brought THP to his attention. Other siblings have provided everything from architecture support to cars to drive from parish to parish.
