  1. Any Filipinos in the blognic, Father? Send my kindest regards to everyone. Hope I can organize the same here in Manila.

  2. Magpie says:

    Great stuff – wish I was there. It is one of the oddest experiences, I think, meeting people you met on the internet, and grew to know online, to actually meet them in the flesh. Surreal. At least for me it is.

  3. We need a Father Z Toronto blognic!

  4. Magpie says:

    How about an Irish blognic! =p Dublin or Belfast!!!

  5. JohnW says:

    I wish I could be there.Maybe one day we could have a blognic in Houston.

  6. Mike says:

  8. poohbear says:

    Everyone in NYC have fun!

    Better not let the liberals or atheistic media see this. They may take it the wrong way!.

    Last picture captures it for me; count me in if you come to Charlotte!

  11. jlmorrell says:

    The blognic looks like a lot of fun.

    John W,
    Yes, if we could get Fr. Z into town, a Houston blognic would be great. If it were on the weekend I’d even drive the 1.5 hour from Beaumont to attend.

    How about a blognic in or near Tiverton, RI?

  13. Bryan says:

    Tiverton? How about on the high altar at Ste. Anne’s in Fall River? That would be an appropriate start…then…maybe the Clipper or TA down on So. Main?

    Unless you know of a good Azorean restaurant in Tiverton? :)

  14. markomalley says:

    Let me know if you plan a blognic for the Baltimore or DC areas?

    (Maybe April 24th?)

  15. Bryan says:

    OOPS! Meant starting with a Mass at the high altar of Ste. Anne’s….sorry, all…

    THAT did NOT come out right. Mea culpa.

  16. r.j.sciurus says:

    Any Yankees fans?

  17. bnaasko says:

    I’m hoping that one day there will be a Denver blognic.

  18. deborah-anne says:

  19. cicada380 says:

  20. hawkeye says:

  21. meisterlowin says:

    Raise a pint for me!

  22. seanm says:

    Looks like great fun! Any Notre Dame/South Bend blognic in your future father?

  23. I think I am supposed to be in Houston in … gulp… August.

  24. caite says:

    what a lovely looking beverage.

  25. Prof. Basto says:

    Was the blognic held in commemoration of this?


    Pope Benedict XVI has named Archbishop Jose H. Gomez of San Antonio, Texas, as Coadjutor Archbishop of Los Angeles. The appointment was announced today, April 6, in Washington, D.C., by Archbishop Pietro Sambi, apostolic nuncio to the United States.

    As Coadjutor, Archbishop Gomez, 58, will automatically become head of the three-county Archdiocese of Los Angeles upon Cardinal Roger Mahony’s retirement at age 75 on February, 27, 2011. A Mass of Reception for Archbishop Gomez is scheduled for May 26.

    Cardinal Roger Mahony will introduce Archbishop Gomez today, Tuesday, April 6 at a 10 a.m. press conference inside the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. Officially credentialed members of the media are invited to attend the press conference.

    “I welcome Archbishop Gomez to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles with enthusiasm and personal excitement,” said Cardinal Mahony. “The Auxiliary Bishops and I are looking forward to working closely with him over the coming months until he becomes the Archbishop early in 2011.”

    Born in Monterrey, Mexico, and spending his early priesthood in Texas, Archbishop Gomez will become the first Hispanic Archbishop of Los Angeles. When he succeeds Cardinal Mahony in 2011, Archbishop Gomez will head the largest Catholic Archdiocese in the United States, with more than five million members, 70 percent of them Hispanic.

    ‘I’m very grateful to the Holy Father for giving me this opportunity to serve the Church with a mentor and leader like Cardinal Roger Mahony,” Archbishop Gomez said. “I’m grateful to the Apostolic Nuncio, Archbishop Pietro Sambi, for supporting the Holy Father’s confidence in me. I will try with all my strength to earn that trust.”

    Good idea about Connecticut. Hey Father, next time you are planning on coming out this way, contact Fr. Markey at St. Mary’s in Norwalk. I’m sure he’d be happy to have you preach a mission or something. You could also check out the basilica of St. John in Stamford (no EF Mass there, but a beautiful choir, the the OF done as it should be…)


  27. revs96 says:

    Primavera is a good Azorean restaurant in Tiverton, RI, and in fact just a few blocks from Holy Ghost Parish, so we could walk. There is also Academica and Caravela literally one block from St. Anne’s which is actually up the street a mile or two from Primavera. I can already smell an Azorean blognic and it smells great! We need to get Fr. Z here for some octopus stew…

  28. irishgirl says:

    I’d like to see a blognic here in Upstate NY!

    Wow, Fr. Z-you’re getting a lot of requests here!

  29. Sandy says:

    I’m jealous, Father, and vote for a blognic in San Diego! Looks like you’ll have to bilocate to fill all the requests!
