A Double Birthday

On December 18, Paulist Fr. Eric Andrews, president of the Paulist Fathers, turns 53 years old. December 18 also is the 198th anniversary of the birth in 1819 of Servant of God Isaac Hecker, our founder.

To celebrate these two birthdays, friends of Fr. Eric and Fr. Hecker may contribute to a special fundraising campaign to benefit critical repairs at the Paulist Fathers Motherhouse in New York City.

Funds will be used to help repair the building's gas heating system, which recently failed. While electric heat is temporarily being used, a costly permanent solution is needed.
