About 180 priests of Brooklyn and Queens join Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio for renewal and ongoing formation at Immaculate Conception Center in Douglaston. The clergy convocation is focused on mercy, with the keynote address given by New Hampshire priest Msgr. Anthony R. Frontiero, a “missionary of mercy” commissioned by Pope Francis. Currents Correspondent Katie Breidenbach speaks with Msgr. Frontiero and the Brooklyn priest who organized the event, Fr. Joseph Fonti, about the importance of mercy in the life of a priest.
