What is mine to do?

Written by
After the inauguration of President Barack Obama, the Center for Action and Contemplation hosted and talk and dialogue with Maryknoll Affiliate Judy Bierbaum (Albuquerque) regarding the role we can play in building a better America. The CAC has posted the video of this dialogue on their website. We encourage you to view it here.

Tom McCormickFr. Tom McCormick is a retired priest of the Archdiocese of Denver.  In addition to parish assignments, he has been involved with a variety of other ministries.  As director of Catholic Community Services-Northern, he set up social services in Ft. Collins, Loveland and Greeley Colorado.  His assignments also include the experience of Campus Ministry at Colorado State University, pastor of John XXIII University Parish. 

His mission experience was in Colombia and Mexico.  The Archdiocese of Denver established a Mission in the diocese of Monteria-Colombia in 1979.  This mission continued with rotation of other diocesan priests and a lay mission team for 15 years.  Fr. McCormick was the priest-leader for the first five years of this foundation.  He also started the new mission in the diocese of Hermosillo (Sonora) Mexico.  Since returning to USA, a big emphasis of his ministry has been with the Latino populations in Colorado.

His attraction to work with Maryknoll comes from the desire to share the mission experiences and promote the work of the Maryknoll missioners, for whom he holds a great admiration. 

Being Prophetic Voices in MissionThe Father Price Maryknoll Affiliate Chapter hosted the North Carolina Maryknoll Affiliate Gathering, "Being Prophetic Voices in Mission." The gathering took place May 1 and 2, 2009, in Wilmington and Topsail Beach, North Carolina.
