Farewell to Sami

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.

Bob Wynne and James Havey listen as Sami says goodbye to group after 10 1/2 years in Cambodia.

Death of Jim Noonan

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.
