Father Erno Diaz's Book Launch, June 10th, 2012 (Page 1 of 4)
St. Margaret Mary's was honored to host Father Diaz's “A Filipino Priest’s New York Diaries” book launch on
June 10th, 2012 at the Olympia Activity Center (OAC).
The book tells a story of Fr. Diaz's life as a priest from the Philippines doing pastoral work in parishes in New York
and New Jersey and savoring the various pastoral and physical landscapes of New York – spanning twenty something
years.  It was published by the Publishing House of the University of Santo Tomas in Manila, where Father finished
Theology and Philosophy.
If you would like to purchase a copy of the book, please contact the Rectory (718-351-2612).  Father Diaz is
contributing the monies from the book sales to charity.



Please allow me to thank you for attending my book launch last Sunday!  The event that coincided with our parish
picnic, which turned out to be beautiful, went very well.  I am grateful to those who bought a copy.  Your generous
donation is very much appreciated.  I will donate the proceeds to a favorite charity in the Philippines.  I want to thank
our parishioners who kindly brought food for the reception.  My very special thanks to Bob Dennis, Miriam Awad
and children Priscilla and Jonathan, for doing the set-up that included the video projection, the posters, the décor,
etc. that made the event special.  Thanks too to our youth group who helped in the ushering.  
God bless!  Father Erno Diaz
