Comments

  1. I am a parishioner of 25 years standing at Christ Church in The Bronx ( Riverdale) New York. I am writing to forward the candidacy of Reverend Patrick Ward for Bishop Suffragent of New York. Father Ward has been an outstanding interim priest at our Parish. He is completely engaging, bright, thoughtful, compassionate yet keeps his tone light and always welcoming. His background in carpentry and as a Marine ground his words with what is authentic and real. He is a genuine leader. He has a wonderful, engaging and uplifting energy . I recommend him to the Diocese wholeheartedly. His spirit, energy and word will be a real contribution. Tony Smith, CEO , BSA Consulting Group.
