Pictures from Brother Rice High School and trip to San Francisco
Many thank to Brother James McDonald for the picture at the left. I had forgotten to grab my camera as I left Transfiguration Friary that Friday morning when I went to Brother Rice High School, So Brother Jim was kind enough to snap a couple of shots of me talking with the students. (My last posting concerning my experience at Brother Rice.)
Last Tuesday I flew to San Francisco to attend a workshop offered by CLINIC (Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc.). I arrived purposefully a day early so that I could take in some of the sights and sounds of the city. Unfortunately I have no pictures taken from historic Fishermen's Wharf because of heavy fog the day I visited. But I do have a picture of a famous trolley car that I rode as well as a shot of 7th Street taken from market Street where I traveled by BART from the airport. (My motel is the Best Western down the street on the left.)
There is no need to use a car in San Francisco. The MUNI (bus and light rail system) can get you within easy walking distance of wherever you are going. The CLINIC workshop was offered at the archdiocesan offices just across the street from the cathedral (pictured on the left). About fifty people--vocation directors and staff, diocesan chancellors, social workers, etc.--gathered to study the new immigration norms that went into effect last November. The two days were intense, but extremely enlightening. CLINIC is a very helpful and good resource for the Church in the USA. I will be using what I learned to help any man from another country who may be accepted into our community.
