Maryknoll on EWTN

FR. PETER LE JACQ, M.M., gave a stellar guest performance on the Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN, a.k.a. Mother Angelica's station) last Sunday, December 13th. He was interviewed by Catholic media superstar, Fr. Benedict Groeschel, founder of the grey-robed Franciscans of the Reform. Mother has been off the show since suffering a stroke several years ago.

Fathers Mike Duggan, Mike Zunno and Kevin Hanlon were part of the peanut gallery in the studio at Dunwoodie Seminary and all gave Le Jacq high marks for his compelling presentation, mostly about his ministry to those with AIDS and HIV in Africa. Zunno called Pete's performance "mezmerizing." Those who watched it on TV are still talking about it in the dining room.

Groeschel spoke fondly of his time teaching at Maryknoll in the 1970s. All-in-all, this show was a great opportunity for Maryknoll to get out its mission message to a very different Catholic audience than we normally reach.

Ms. Maureen Toowey will try to make a DVD of that show available soon.
