We are delighted to welcome our new chaplain, Fr. Marcos Ramos, OP! Father is a member of our southern Dominican province (province of St. Martin de Porres) and originally hails from Puerto Rico. He will be working on his doctoral dissertation while serving as our chaplain, so he may not have time for all the other extracurricular activities our chaplains usually do! Fr. Marcos is pursuing a doctorate in historical theology and the topic of his dissertation concerns St. Irenaeus of Lyons (an early Church father) and baptism. We met with Father during recreation recently and he shared some of his findings with us…really intriguing! We hope he will have time to teach us a class or give a talk occasionally. He also has a beautiful singing voice which has already enlivened our liturgies. We have been truly blessed in all our chaplains, and we are confident that this time will be a blessing as well.
