Since Finbarr M Corr came from Ireland to the US in 1960 as a 鳳ionary಩est, he has led a very full life. His ministry included working with inner-city youth and the adults of Northern New Jersey as well as counseling engaged and married couples. From his early years in Paterson, NJ, he was not just tolerant of other cultures and religions, but built bridges of communication and trust among people so that together they could work together for a better world.

After 28 joy-filled years as a Catholic priest, Finbarr resigned the priesthood to marry Laurie Hutton. He continued his ministry as marriage and family therapist, professor and writer. An active Rotarian, he now fosters dialogue between Muslims, Jews and Christians as a step towards world peace and understanding.

Finbarrୡny readers enjoy his Irish wit, the insights into relationships that he offers, and the way in which he encourages all not to be inhibited by life௢stacles but to the cross the bridge to a more fulfilling life.
