Priest at helm of Bible society

Boston Globe reporter Michael Paulson recently reported on the Massachusetts Bible Society, which is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year, and its efforts to reinvent itself in the age Facebook, Twitter and other technological advances. Click HERE to read his story.
What's particularly interesting for Catholics is the fact that a priest, Father Walter H. Cuenin, is the society's president. He told Paulson that he joined the society because he thought it was important to have Catholic involvement in an organization that for a long time was Protestant-only.

  1. Yes, he is now one of a number of Catholics on our Board of Trustees. The Society President before Fr. Cuenin was a Catholic laywoman, Catherine Minkewicz. We now have a Greek Orthodox priest as a Trustee also and I'm the first woman Executive Director in our 200-year history. The wheels turn slow in religious organizations, but they do turn!

    Rev. Anne Robertson, Executive Director, Massachusetts Bible Society
