Important Winter Storm-Related Service Changes

New York City parks are now open. We continue to urge caution in parks under wintry conditions: parks paths can be slippery, snow cover can cover frozen lakes and bodies of water, and branches may have fallen. If you see a fallen branch call 311.

Some recreation centers will open from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. today with limited staffing.

Monsignor Raul del Valle (1926-1988) was born in Cuba on June 1, 1926. He left Cuba to study in Rome and in 1949 he earned a Licentiate in Canon Law at Gregorian University. He then returned to Cuba to be ordained as a priest. He was Secretary to the Cardinal, but was forced to flee the county after Fidel Castro came to power. He arrived in the United States in 1961, where he held several parish and teaching assignments until he was made pastor of Saint Anselm Parish in 1976. After rehabilitating and revitalizing the church, the Archidiocese asked him to take over the parish at Saint Athanasius in 1980.
