Holy Name of Mary’s 90 ministries and counting embrace the broken

Since his prostate and bone cancer diagnosis on March 12, 2017, Fr. Bill Moore has come to describe his experience with one word: overwhelming.

In a room of about 120 people at Holy Name of Mary Parish in San Dimas, California, on Aug. 20, Moore, priest at the parish, led a support group talk on cancer. He brought out laughs and smiles but never sugarcoated what living with cancer is like, encouraging people to talk about their true feelings.

“I’m not the same person I was a year ago,” he said. “Everything’s harder and different.”

The talk, called Caring Through Cancer, was put together by Holy Name of Mary’s Health and Wellness Ministry, one of about 90 ministries in the church.
