From our Servant General: “… we visited the main office of the Priests for Life in Staten Island, New York. I was with Ed Yamba (Area Servant of NJ), Pepe Ruffy (AS of NY), Jun Cruz (National Coordinator of MPC USA), Jun Banaria (MPC), with our respective wives (Gerry, Melanie, Lala, Alma, Helen). We were there from 11:30am to 3pm. We met Fr Frank Pavone (who was the main pro-life speaker at our USA Conference the other week-end in Chicago), Fr Peter West (who was in Manila for our anniversary and PFL retreat) and many others, including 3 Filipino staffers.
We had lunch with the whole staff and met their pastoral team, consisting of 6 priests (including Fr Frank and Fr Peter), Bob Lalonde (who was in Manila visiting with us) and Dr Alveda King (niece of Martin Luther King).
I am very happy and enthused about our meeting with Priests for Life. I look forward to greater collaboration, for the cause of life and the glory of God.
