    The Year of Faith: What’s Next?
    Growing up in a family whose roots are deep in the small Caribbean island of Trinidad and Tobago I’ve always heard December 31st referred to as “Old Year’s Night” instead of “New Year’s Eve.” I’ve always kind of liked calling it “Old Year’s Night.” Calling it that, in a way,...

It was the summer before I graduated and was completing an assignment for a photojournalism class. I’d supported pro-life organizations and prayed at prayer vigils, but never directly on the sidewalk outside a...

    This weekend I happened to stumbled upon two pilgrimage sites for the Year of Faith in Denver, CO in less than 48 hours. It was quite the blessed surprise (and not so much an accident!). I was in Denver last week for work and decided to stay the weekend to...
