Sami Scott, a Maryknoll Lay Missioner, is finishing her term in Cambodia and moving to a new mission in Haiti. Today was her last time to be with the Cambodia Mission Team for their weekly Wednesday gathering, and at the end of mass we presented a small gift to Sami.

We had a memorial service yesterday for Fr. Jim Noonan who died in New York early in May. He was here in Cambodia for eighteen years and is still well remembered by many. Click here for pictures from the service.
Yesterday morning I woke up to messages that Fr. Jim Noonan had died during the Cambodian night. Jim was a Maryknoll priest who served in Cambodia from 1991 to 2009. He and I lived together for several years, and he was one of the finest people and finest priests I know. We will miss him a lot. Here we have his picture before the altar as we set up for our liturgy with our regular Wednesday meeting today.
