I still dont. Here I am in Brooklyn. I came. I knocked on the doors in Brooklyn and I was received with open arms. He went to Immaculate Conception Seminary in Long Island where he received a masters degree in theology, and was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Brooklyn by Bishop Francis J. Mugavero on May 29, 1971. Ive been in Brooklyn since. Never left Brooklyn. Im a Brooklynite, he said. In Brooklyn, Bishop Cisneros has ministered to Hispanics including the Puerto Rican and Dominican communities, and was named epis- copal vicar and rector of the college seminary. After his episcopal ordination in 2006, he was named an auxiliary bishop and is currently serving as Vicar for Hispanic Concerns for the diocese, and as pastor of Holy Child Jesus Parish in Queens. We (Brooklyn) are a diocese of immigrants. We cannot generalize, Bishop Cisneros said. We can make a difference for people by touch- ing their lives and by discovering who they are I would not be here if it were not for the care I received from so many people. And not just the Church, from everybody. The govern- ment too, because the government supported some of these programs, Bishop Cisneros said. I think the advice I can give is to always be open. Be open to Gods grace in you. Whatev- er it might be. Not just priesthood, anything. Sometimes we put ourselves in some drawers we already have decided what is going to be. That stifles the Spirit of God in us. We always have to be open to whatever God brings along our way and begin to look at things in a differ- ent way. I did when I was a teenager. I already had my mind made up that I was going to go to the Northern Michigan University and study to be an engineer. But, all of a sudden something came up and, thank God, I was able to have an open mind and say, Okay, Ill look at this and try it, if not Ill come back. As I said, not just priesthood, even your own careers, even human relationships. Sometimes people get in marriages (thinking), Well, this is the girl Im going to marry and thats it. Well wait a second. Study, think, pray and then make a commitment for life. We jump into things too quickly without giving an opportu- nity to the Spirit of God to guide (us), Bishop Cisneros said. FROM PAGE 10 CISNEROS: From orphanage to bishop Holy Family Orphanage in Marquette is about to complete a $16 million transformation. The 90,000 square foot building, built in 1915 by the Diocese of Marquette to provide a home for orphans and needy children, will soon be provide housing for low- to moderate-income individ- uals and families. With one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, it will also provide support- ive housing units for formerly homeless persons and families in need of some level of support. Vacant since 1981, the building was sold by the diocese to investors in 1986. Plans were to make it a home with a wellness center for veterans and to work in conjunction with the Jaco- betti veterans facility across Altamont Street. The building, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has changed hands several times since but never put back into use until now. Community Action Alger-Marquette is taking applications for the newly renamed Grandview Marquette with hopes of residents moving in the end of October or in November.
