ALBANY >> Close to 300 clergy, religious, family, friends and well-wishers attended the ordination of four men as the newest deacons of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany.

Three of four men ordained as deacons are preparing to eventually become priests of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany. For the three of the four, now in their fifties, this religious life represents a second career.

This ceremony, celebrated by Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger, was held at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Albany. In his homily, Bishop Scharfenberger said those committed in this way to Jesus Christ are “putting ourselves in the Lord’s hands as servants.”

*** and ***

The two men who have decided later in life to become priests include: Patrick Rice, of Loudonville who has been surrounded by deeply religious family members for most of his life. After 27 years in the commercial tire business he left to prepare for the priesthood.

*** and ***

Rice was born in Teaneck, N.J., and lived in River Edge, N.J., for most of his childhood. He is one of eight children born to Mary and Joseph Rice. His mom, now 91 lives in River Edge. His father died in 1991. His family includes brothers and sisters-in-law Greg and Carol Rice of Philadelphia, Michael and Kimberly Rice of River Edge, and John and Laquisa Rice of San Diego. He has four sisters: Kam of Teaneck, N.J.; Kathryn of Santa Fe, N.M., Maureen, and her husband, Greg, of River Edge, and Mary Jane, who became a member of Opus Dei at 18 years old, took vows, never married and has dedicated her life to Christ.

Rice, whose home parish is St. Pius X in Loudonville, is a graduate of Manhattan College.

He credits his parents as being influential regarding following a faith-filled life. His father was a permanent deacon in the parish where he grew up in New Jersey. As for his own decision to study for the priesthood, he said, “I just felt there was something missing in my life and realized when I entered the church doors I felt a sense of peace come over me and felt that was what was missing and knew then that I was being called.”

News: Tampa Bay two-time POW in WWII remembers his war

TAMPA, Fla. – ORAN, Algeria, Nov. 8, 1942, Operation Torch: “They blew holes in the ship … I saw a shell hit a wall and tore some gears out. They even blew the turret off our boat,” said Pfc. John Quigley as he described his participation in the doomed allied landing attempt at Oran harbor.

*** and ***

He was from the Bronx. Quigley was born in 1919 in the Harlem section of New York. 

By 1936, Quigley’s physical prowess soon made him an aspiring Olympic track star. Training with an Olympian, he entered Manhattan College in 1939 and joined the track team. He trained with some of the best athletes of his day. He was twice voted Most Valuable Player of the Senior Met AAU Championships. Quigley’s best track time was the quarter mile in 47.20 seconds, a track record not broken until 1954. Hoping to go onto the Olympics, Quigley ran track until war broke out. His accomplishments were put on hold, he was drafted in 1941 and he did not resume running until seven years later.

Drafted and sent to Camp Dix in New Jersey for basic training, Quigley was assigned to the First Armored Division. He spent six months training in the U.S., England and Scotland, and then shipped out for the invasion of North Africa.
