Hunger Mass in New Orleans

From: “Department of Christian Formation” <>

Date: Fri, 23 Apr 2010

Greatly appreciate your e-mail on our Irish Martyrs.  Your letter was addressed to Archdiocese of New Orleans.  Someone in our mail office sent it to me in the Chancery.  My family came form Elphin Roseamonnon.  I’ve visited Ireland many times and especially the priest rocks.  Will be offering Mass on the day of hunger.  We had thousands of Irish die here in the digging of the canals from plague and yellow fever.

Sincerely in the Lord,

Very Rev. Neal W. McDermott, O.P.

Executive Director of Christian Formation
