We are so happy to welcome Father Fidelis Halifax Oppong to Saint Anthony of Padua Parish for the next few weeks. Father Fidelis will be spending his vacation with us during the summer and will also be assisting with Masses and other pastoral duties during his time with us. This is Father Fidelis’ first visit to New York and to the United States so we will look forward to showing him around the New York area and giving him a good taste of American culture. Father Fidelis was ordained in 2008 for the Diocese of Sunyani, Ghanna in West Africa and he is currently studying for his Doctorate in bioethics in Switzerland. We are happy to have Father Fidelis with us and be sure to welcome him and make him feel right at home when you see him. God bless you Father Fidelis!
