Catholic actress Hogan likes pace of her career

WASHINGTON - You probably would not recognize Siobhan Fallon Hogan by name, although you might have spotted her in a few landmark screen hits.

She had a recurring role three times on TV's "Seinfeld" and a role in the movie "Men in Black," spent one year as a member of the "Saturday Night Live" cast and, last year, played the part of a birthing instructor who sounds a lot like cartoon character Elmer Fudd in the film comedy "Baby Mama."

From "Baby Mama," Hogan landed a role in the new romantic comedy "New in Town," starring Renee Zellweger and Harry Connick Jr.

Priest shares experience of Sixth World Meeting of Families

A few weeks ago, I joined Archbishop Elden Francis Curtiss, Valerie Conzett and Mariana Chavez from the archdiocese's Family Life Office at the Sixth World Meeting of Families in Mexico City.

Cardinals, bishops, priests and laity from around the world gathered Jan. 14-18 to both educate and inspire families, including parents, children and grandparents, to a life built on authentic human and Christian values.

Although Pope Benedict XVI was unable to attend, everyone expressed great zeal for the meeting, which was evident by the constant cheering.
