JNEWS: Rice, Patrick [MC1981] Deacon, preparing for the priesthood



Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany ordains four new deacons


*** begin quote ***

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.”

Chuck Adams’ Secret Recipe for Muppet PC Boards (and lots of other homebrew tips)

*** begin quote ***

A few days ago I shared an e-mail from John N8RVE on his re-build of the SW-40.   John used a “Muppet” board, Muppet being a combination of Manhattan and Ugly techniques.  But there is nothing ugly about it really.  I joked in the title of the blog post that the beauty of this technique is almost enough to get a homebrewer to abandon the Manhattan technique.  Now, I was born on Manhattan island, and I went to Manhattan College, and I have been using the Manhattan technique for many years, so there is a lot of homebrew inertia at work here.   But that SW-40 looked good.  John mentioned that Chuck Adams K7QO has a series of YouTube videos on how to make Muppet boards.   This morning as I waited for the bands to open up, I  decided to take a look.

I have 5 living James O’Neill’s, so without a Middle Initial, I am unable to decide which James this is.

This message is in connection with the JasperJottings JFound James O’Neill.

I believe this Jasper is of the Class of ‘ 81, and he is listed in Manhattan’s Directory as James R. O’Neill.

The item in JasperJottings as a part of his Found listings points out that he is connected with O’Neill Marketing Agents.

My copy of the Directory says that James R. O’Neill is president of O’Neill Marketing Agents.

I believe this is sufficient information to list James R. as a member of the Class of ’81.
