Subject: Question about Priesthood
Date: Sat, 24 Jul 2004 16:37:21 -0500 (Central Daylight Time)
I recently received pictures of some family members. One of the pictures is
of a Alphonse Boardway from Upper State NY. The other pictures are of
family members at his Ordination in Upper State NY.
A few questions I have :
Does a Priest change his name when he is Ordained, like a Nun would when she
takes her Vows?
I know he was ordained in Upper State NY, anyone know how I could go about
finding out where and when?
I believe he was Ordained in the late 70's or early 80's, this I attained by
the pictures as my Grandfather Faucher, with some of his siblings are in
these pictures, too.
I believe he is still living, or he was as of 1999. His Aunt Rena (Boardway)
Trim was a housekeeper at his rectory at the time of her passing. I
contacted the Dioceses in Ogdensburg, but the lady I spoke with said that
she didn't know a Alphonse Boardway and she had only been there a couple of
Is there anyway of finding a Priest who may still be living?
Any help pointing me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate.
