Durante este periodo, se desempeñó como Guardián Menor y luego Guardián Mayor de su parroquia y, finalmente, como asesor legal de la IX Provincia de la Iglesia Episcopal.Sin embargo, Infante sentía un llamado más profundo al ministerio pastoral en la iglesia. Sintió un llamado al ministerio sacerdotal y comenzó el proceso de discernimiento y formación para el sacerdocio. Fue licenciado como ministro pastoral laico en 2008 y nombrado para trabajar en la Misión de San Patricio, en las afueras de Bogotá. En 2009, comenzó sus estudios en el Centro de Estudios Teológicos en Bogotá y recibió una Licenciatura en Estudios Teológicos. Fue ordenado diácono transicional en 2012 y asignado a continuar su trabajo en la Misión de San Patricio.En 2015, el Diácono Infante comenzó sus últimos seis meses de estudios anglicanos, en el Seminario Episcopal en Santo Domingo en la República Dominicana, como preparación para su ordenación al sacerdocio. Fue durante este tiempo de estudio que conoció al Reverendo Dr. Jared C. Cramer quien se encontraba en el seminario haciendo un entrenamiento intensivo en español en preparación para un nuevo ministerio latino en su parroquia en Grand Haven, Michigan. Después de enterarse del ministerio en Grand Haven, el Diácono Infante ofreció venir y pasar seis meses en San Juan, ayudando a lanzar su iniciativa de ministerio El Corazón Latino.La iniciativa ministerial en San Juan se llamó “El Corazón” debido a su enfoque en expandir una comunidad latina que estaría en el centro/corazón de la congregación, en lugar de su perímetro. Según datos federales proporcionados por el Centro de Vivienda Justa de Grand Rapids, el área metropolitana de Grand Rapids-Holland-Grand Haven es la vigésima más segregada en los Estados Unidos. Grand Haven se encuentra en el centro de esa segregación, una comunidad abrumadoramente blanca, pero con poblaciones latinas considerables al sur en West Olive y Holland. Dicho esto, la población latina en Grand Haven ha aumentado a lo largo de los años, ahora situándose en 2.7% de la población, un aumento de casi 44% desde los datos de 2010. Sin embargo, todavía no hay iglesias en el área de Grand Haven que ofrezcan servicios en español durante todo el año.En 2016, la parroquia se postuló a la oficina nacional de la Iglesia Episcopal para ser nombrada Zona de Esfuerzo Misionero, dándole acceso a fondos que, combinados con fondos parroquiales y diocesanos, podrían crear un puesto de Rector Asociado de medio tiempo. De las casi setenta solicitudes presentadas en la Iglesia Episcopal, sólo la mitad pudieron ser financiadas, pero San Juan se encontraba entre esa mitad. El Diácono Infante transfirió su residencia canónica al oeste de Michigan para completar su camino hacia la ordenación y la Junta Parroquial de San Juan lo nombró con entusiasmo como su Rector Asociado.Durante 2017, el Diácono Infante ha trabajado con la Diócesis de Michigan Occidental para finalizar los pasos hacia su ordenación sacerdotal y, al mismo tiempo, para hacer crecer a la comunidad Latina que rinde culto en San Juan. La parroquia contrató a una nueva coordinadora bilingüe de niños y jóvenes, Reyna Masko, para continuar el trabajo iniciado por el coordinador anterior, Luis Hernández, reuniendo en un mismo grupo a los niños y adolescentes de ambas culturas. Solo durante este año, cuatro nuevas familias se han convertido en parte de la comunidad que rinde culto en español. La Iniciativa de la Misión llevó a cabo una venta de tacos frente a las gradas del Desfile de la Guardia Costera de los Estados Unidos, recaudando casi $ 1,000 para el ministerio. En el verano pasaron una tarde en el evento local de agradecimiento al trabajador migrante, repartiendo alimentos y artículos para el hogar, a la vez que ofrecían fotos y pintura de caras gratis.En agosto, el Ministerio Latino celebró su segundo aniversario y en septiembre, el Diácono Infante recibió su aprobación final para ser ordenado al sacerdocio. Su ordenación se llevará a cabo en San Juan el sábado 28 de octubre a las 11:00 a. m., con un almuerzo festivo gratuito de comida tradicional colombiana para todos los que asistan. No solo el diácono Infante será el primer sacerdote latino ordenado en esta diócesis, sino que el servicio de ordenación será la primera ordenación bilingüe en la diócesis. El celebrante será el Muy Rev. Whayne Hougland, octavo obispo de Michigan Occidental, también de descendencia latina, que espera hablar en inglés y español en el servicio. El predicador será el Rector de San Juan, el Padre Cramer, y el sermón se traducirá simultáneamente al español para los asistentes hispanoparlantes.A medida que la parroquia mira hacia el futuro, la emoción por su ministerio latino es evidente. Las culturas continuarán mezclándose a través de oportunidades como liturgias bilingües regulares durante todo el año, el Altar del Día de Los Muertos en noviembre para celebrar el Día de Todos los Santos y una celebración planificada de Posadas en diciembre que culminará en la canción de cuna al Niño Jesús, una tradición latina de oración en Nochebuena. La membresía de la junta parroquial ahora incluye miembros de hablan inglés y español y esperan continuar los esfuerzos para garantizar que la comunidad permanezca integrada en la fraternidad aunque rindan culto en varios idiomas.La Iglesia Episcopal de San Juan es una comunidad cristiana diversa en el corazón del centro de Grand Haven. Uno de los lugares de culto más antiguos de Grand Haven, busca combinar la liturgia histórica con la educación desafiante y el servicio activo. Se reúnen para la Santa Eucaristía los domingos en inglés a las 8:30 a.m. y a las 10:00 a.m. y en español a las 12:45 p.m. Se puede encontrar información adicional en el sitio web de St. Johns www.stjohnsepiscopal.com o en la oficina parroquial: 616-842-6260.La ordenación se transmitirá en vivo el sábado, a partir de las 10:45 a.m., en línea aquí.

Apopka steps up preparations for Hurricane Irma

first_img From the City of Apopka The City of Apopka is continuing preparations for Hurricane Irma while monitoring the changing track of the enormous storm.Several truckloads of sand and bags were provided to the public Wednesday at Edwards Field, 11 Forest Ave. Service is resuming from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. today. Drivers should enter the site from the east, along North Highland Avenue, and exit south onto East First Street. Residents can make up to 10 bags of sand. City representatives will be available for assistance.On his Facebook page yesterday, Mayor Joe Kilsheimer posted this information in regards to the amount of sandbags distributed yesterday:Hurricane sandbags by the numbers:– 180 tons of sand distributed.– 12,000+ sand bags filled.– A 14-hour day put in by your City of Apopka Streets crew. – Untold hours of support and traffic control by the Apopka Police Department.– Pretty much a steady two-hour wait throughout the day by Apopka residents to get sand bags.City crews are checking backup electric generators to assist municipal utilities, traffic signals and buildings in case of power outages during the storm. Storm drains are checked for debris.Contractors for several city construction projects are clearing those areas of large items that may blow away in high winds. The city’s Community Development Department requested private builders to minimize the amount of materials that could fly away from construction sites.The City of Apopka continues to monitor the predicted track of Hurricane Irma, which will begin to impact Florida by Sunday, according to current forecasts from the National Hurricane Center. Local impacts from Hurricane Irma will become clearer in the next day or two as the storm approaches the state. Residents are asked to prepare home emergency kits that include fresh drinking water, non-perishable food, flashlights, batteries, tools and a medical first aid kit.Decisions regarding the opening of any shelters will be made once there is a better determination of Hurricane Irma’s projected path and its impact, according to Orange County’s Emergency Operations Center. An announcement likely would be closer to Saturday morning. Orange County does not announce shelter locations prior to confirmation of shelter’s opening.Potential changes to Apopka’s solid waste collection service will be determined later this week pending future forecasts for Hurricane Irma. Certain city offices will close at 2 p.m. Friday to allow public employees to prepare for the storm with their families.The city will provide information and updates during the week via the municipal website, www.apopka.net , and the city’s Facebook page. Residents are encouraged to be prepared for any severe weather event and to monitor progress of Hurricane Irma at www.nhc.noaa.gov.       LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Please enter your name here Please enter your comment!

The anti-war presidential candidate

first_imgCampaign button for Eugene Debs.Eugene V. Debs ran for president in 1920 from a prison cell where he had been thrown because of his opposition to World War I. Debs, a militant labor leader and a socialist, got a million votes, even though he wasn’t endorsed by either of the two “major” parties. His campaign button, shown here, proudly included his prisoner ID number.Debs’ strong opposition to imperialist war was shared by many workers, who knew exactly what he was talking about when he said: “Let me emphasize the fact — and it cannot be repeated too often — that the working class who fight all the battles, the working class who make the supreme sacrifices, the working class who freely shed their blood and furnish the corpses, have never yet had a voice in either declaring war or making peace. It is the ruling class that invariably does both.”Now, many, many U.S. wars later, there is more reason than ever for any candidate professing socialism to come out strongly and clearly in opposition to the monstrous U.S. military machine that has ravaged so many areas of the globe in the name of “peace” and “democracy.”— Report by Deirdre GriswoldFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Industry Reacts to Rumored Freddie Mac Move

Bloomberg reported that Freddie Mac executives pressed to finance single-family rentals as early as 2012 but those efforts were halted by FHFA officials who worried that the deals might stifle bank participation in the market.“What we are seeing is a major shift in housing policy—the recognition that single family rentals is an important segment of the housing market,” said Greg Rand, CEO of OwnAmerica, in an interview with DS News on Friday.Rand noted however that not all housing professionals may be as welcoming of this news as he is. If the reaction to when Fannie Mae announced it was moving into SFR-financing by guaranteeing a $1 billion dollar loan to Invitation Homes is any indication, then Rand may be right.At that time, groups like the National Association of Realtors (NAR) opposed the Fannie Mae deal on the grounds that it was subsidizing big investors at the expense of homebuyers.“Rather than focusing on allowing well-qualified Americans to build wealth through affordable mortgage options, Fannie Mae is actively financing large institutions to compete with them,” William Brown, President of the NAR, said in a January 31 letter to Mel Watt, director of the Federal Housing Finance Agency.On the opposite side, Rand told DS News, “Policy changes from Freddie, Fannie and HUD are going to provide cheaper financing for owners, which will encourage investment and contribute to more affordable rentals for tenants. It’s disheartening that the National Association of Realtors has chosen to line up against investors because of the natural competition investors are to first time home buyers.”Expanding on that Rand outlined he differs with NAR for the following reasons: “By lining up against investors, they are lining up against their tenants too. Renter families should have the opportunity to live in safe neighborhoods with good schools too. [Also] NAR’s membership closes 1,000,000 property transactions every year. That’s more than $3 billion in fees earned, and that pays lots of dues to NAR. It’s hypocritical to label landlords as villains.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Tagged with: Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Invitation Homes NAR Own America Single Family Rental Previous: Fitch Gives Ocwen ‘Stable’ Rating Next: The Week Ahead: The Federal Open Market Committee Convenes Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Invitation Homes NAR Own America Single Family Rental 2017-03-10 Staff Writer Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Secondary Market Home / Daily Dose / Industry Reacts to Rumored Freddie Mac Move The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago  Print This Post Share Save Related Articles The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Industry Reacts to Rumored Freddie Mac Move About Author: Staff Writerlast_img read more
