Congratulations are in order for such recognition Monsignor O'Doherty since I have seen his dedication from the time my daughters studied at Inmaculate Concepcion School in Hialeah and recently some of my grandchildren are going to Our Lady of Lourdes and others to Ephiphany School where he is presently doing, once again a tremendous Pastoral work. Gracias Monsenor por su dedicacion y por ser un gran Guia Espiritual para varias generaciones. Mis hijas fueron Violeta, Teresita y Laura Sanchez en Hialeah. Ahora mis nietos son Victoria Bianchi todavia en OLLA y Alexandra & Gabriel Rivera en Ephiphany.
