Here's a profile on our special guest speakers:

Elaine Schenk, M.Id.

Grew up in Kansas, pursued by the Divine Persons for years, thinking They wanted me to be a lay missionary in Latin America, and excited to cooperate with that plan. On pilgrimage at age 21, I caved in to Divine Love and a few months later ended up as a religious missionary in New York City--the last place in the world I would have chosen to live. And you know what? I wouldn't have it any other way! "Believe and Hope" is the motto of the Idente Missionaries, founded in 1959 by Fernando Rielo in the Canary Islands and now spread over all the continents on the planet in 25 countries. By the time I see you, we will be caring for three parishes in the Bronx, besides working in campus ministry for the Archdiocese and administering a Catholic university distance learning center in Queens, near our residence and retreat center. "Be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect" is the command that defines our charism, along with Christ's counsel that "wherever two or more are gathered in my name, there am I in your midst". We have monthly spirituality discussions and exercises for all ages, inviting all who desire to be more conformed to Christ to live more deeply His Gospel and give witness to the Father's love.

Rev. Luke M. Sweeney, S.T.L.

Father Sweeney is Vocations Director for the Archdiocese of New York. Father is resident at Neumann. Father studied at the John Paul II Institute in Rome. He has served for as parochial vicar at Sacred Heart Church (Newburgh) and a formation advisor at Neumann.

Rev. Luis F. Saldaña, S.T.D. (Cand.)

Father Saldaña is a formation advisor at Neumann and Professor of Dogmatic Theology at Saint Joseph's Seminary. Additionally, Father serves as Assistant Vocations Director for Hispanic Vocations. Father is a priest of the Archdiocese of New York and a native of Mexico. He is a candidate in the doctoral program of the Faculty of Theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University.
