FSSP Seeks Volunteers for Traditional Catholic School in Colombia

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Father Alfaro, FSSP, is looking for two volunteers that would be interested in teaching at the FSSP school in Anolaima Colombia. He would especially like Americans to volunteer. The role would officially be an English teacher but there are many other opportunities and needs for help at the FSSP school.
You would need to commit for 6 months starting in mid January 2016 and leave in late June/early July 2016. You would be provided room and board. You would need about $300 US for personal expenses for the 6 months and you would have to provide your own airfare to Bogota. You would need to know a little Spanish — some basics so you can build on it and learn the language while there. Ages desired are about 23 or up. Living conditions are very basic and this will be a challenging and sometimes difficult assignment. If you would like to volunteer or if you know a Catholic in the USA or Canada who would be interested, you can contact me and I”ll give them the details and if interested I’ll put  them in contact with the FSSP in South America. God Bless,
John Rasnick

Robert Quagan, R.I.P. (1958-2015)

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Robert Quagan, husband of Chrstine Quagan,chairwoman of Una Voce Boston, passed away Saturday evening, on the Feast of the Assumption.  His Requiem Mass was celebrated this morning at Mary Immaculate of Lourdes in Newton Highlands, Ma. by Fr. Charles Higgins with Fr. Joseph Santos of Providence as Deacon and Fr. Thomas Kocik of Fall River as Subdeacon.
In addition to his efforts to promote the traditional Mass, Rob was one of the men who revitalized the Holy Name Society at Holy Trinity Church in Boston.  At a time – pre-Summorum Pontificum – when any overt efforts to promote the TLM were regarded with fear and suspicion by the chancery, the HNS was an important organization for men of a traditionally-Catholic orientation in the Archdiocese to meet and deepen their faith.   Trained as an architect, Rob was an especially eloquent exponent of traditional Catholic church architecture and was a stalwart in the long struggle to try and save Holy Trinity Church.
Full obituary:
Rob was a true Catholic Gentleman, a good father and husband, and a loyal friend.  His life exemplified the Christian Virtues, and especially those of Fortitude, Faith, Hope, and Charity during his three-year illness. In your charity please pray for the repose of his soul, and for the intentions of his family.
Requiescat in pace.
