Archives Father Chapin featured in Maryknoll Magazine

Sept. 9, 2020

A familiar face is included in the pages of this quarter’s edition of Maryknoll Magazine. The September/October release includes a multi-page feature about Father Daniel L. Chapin, a priest of the Diocese of Ogdensburg.

Father Chapin, 73, is currently serving with Maryknoll in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

In the feature story, written by Giovana Soria, a reporter with Maryknoll Magazine, Father Chapin recounts the story of his vocation to the priesthood, his history working as a missionary priest, how he became affiliated with Maryknoll and what it’s been like to serve in Bolivia, especially during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

The article also includes quotes from parishioners of Our Lady of La Salette Parish, the parish where Father Chapin currently serves.

One parishioner recounted turning to Father Chapin when he was feeling discouraged after dealing with cases of domestic violence, sexual abuse and suicide attempts as a psychology intern.

“He encouraged me to pray because it gives us strength,” Ronald Albarez told Maryknoll Magazine. “Young people always need someone to talk to and it helped me to release the pain I was carrying from others and to continue my studies.”
