Congratulations to the Prep Men - Sons of Harris

Submitted by Isabel Dennis - Cummings

Back in the day, the norm for my parents and circle of friends was to motivate children; success through - family life, education, hard work and staying close to the church. Hopefully children would do better than their parents, become model citizens and be a pride to their race.

Loyalty, Honesty, Dedication, Love, a positive philosophy of life where all components in the Road to Success.

It is with pride that I salute the Cathedral Prep alumni that have stood tall, loyal to their former teacher, mentor, friend Monsignor Wallace A Harris.

" a friend in need is a friend indeed"

It is easy to be there in good happy times but you re really needed in bittersweet/ bad times.

You are to be congratulated, encouraged and recognized for your willingness to STAND UP , WRITE , ARTICULATE and DO.......... You have walked away from the toothless tigers, those waiting standing muted.

Why the silence?

It has been almost 4 months since Msgr. Harris was removed as Pastor, yet not one word from the Archdiocese as to what steps are to be taken to resolve this nightmare. All these unanswered questions, yet the Leader of the Roman Catholic Church in New York says nothing. I was interviewed by the Assistant DA of New York and they were more interested in resolving these allegations in a timely fashion. Can the same be said for these Church proceedings? I've been told to pray and God's Will be done; but I worry about one man's lack of will to do what is right and true. Return Msgr. Harris to active priestly duty. This is what I pray for!
