On March 13 (sorry, it’s sold out)
Acclaimed photographer and filmmaker, Neil Leifer, turns his lens on a true American success story, New York City restaurateur, Jimmy Neary. The documentary follows Neary’s journey from his humble immigrant roots in Ireland to his 50-year run as proprietor of one of Gotham’s iconic eateries. The film features notable regulars, including Timothy Cardinal Dolan, former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Goldman Sachs’s CEO Lloyd Blankfein.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with:
Timothy Cardinal Dolan, Archbishop of New York
Neil Leifer, Director
Jimmy Neary, Owner of Neary’s
Una Neary, Managing Director, Goldman Sachs
(Neary’s is a bar – or should I say a pub – near the Archdiocesan headquarters, and a favorite of those who work there. To call it “iconic” is to take liberty. But what will Neary’s do, if current plans to sell “1011” materialize?)
Amid the towers and new construction of the London City – a stark reminder to the obsequious servants of mammon. The churchyard gate of St. Olave’s, Hart Street.
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. (Phil. 1.21)
The New York Chapter of the Archconfraternity of Our Lady of Prompt Succor will have its annual Traditional Latin Mass (a missa cantata) for the Feast of Our Lady of Prompt Succor on Saturday, January 14th, 2017, at the Church of St. Simon and Jude, Brooklyn, NY at 9:00am.
The celebrant with be Father Stephen Giulietti and it will be preceded by a silent Holy Hour at 8:00am, followed by Benediction with the pastor, Father Fred Marano. The Mass will be offered to Our Lady of Prompt Succor for the conversion of the United States to a culture of life.
We received this note from a reader:
“There is an every Sunday TLM at 9:00 a.m. at the parish church of Saint Anthony, 1496 Commonwealth Avenue, Bronx, NY 10460. On holy days of obligation that don’t fall on Sunday, the TLM is scheduled for 10 a.m.
Since July 2016, the administrator (i.e., pastor in all but name) of Saint Anthony parish has been Father Louis J. Anderson. Just like his predecessor, Father Miara (now pastor of Holy Innocents), Father Anderson is a strong advocate of Tradition. The lack of support that Saint Anthony’s nearly decade-long commitment to the TLM has received from Trads within easy driving distance of the church is most saddening.”
Tomorrow, Monday, January 2, Holy Name of Jesus Church will offer a Missa Cantata at 3 pm for its patronal feast of the Most Holy Name of Jesus. The church address is 245 Prospect Park West.
