Not only was I amazed at the show of support by all who came and all our sponsors, but also at the potential of the Hall to serve so many wonderful purposes. Fifty people from around the tristate area gathered at the Bishop Molloy Retreat House in Queens on October 27, to hear Dr Richard Gaillardetz speak both as a theologian and as the father of a gay son.
