To commemorate the anniversary of the birth of Father Angelo D’Agostino, SJ, MD. Father D’Ag, we’d like to draw on the US Congressional Record. In 2008, Rep. George Miller placed into the record a warm recounting of Father D’Ag:
His birth is a cause for continued celebration as he was a living testament to the principle that one person can indeed make a difference. . . . These achievements by Father D’Ag should serve as an inspiration to us all. He changed the world one child at a time, and he expanded his reach to do so much for so many people who are in desperate need of food, medical care and love. Even though he has departed from this world, he has left behind an enduring legacy through his programs for children. His passion and commitment are carried on through his incredible disciple and partner, Sister Mary Owens, who continues his work. She is joined by many other dedicated staff members and volunteers who will continue to nurture and protect Father D’Ag’s children. No one can visit Nyumbani without being changed forever.
