About the Author
Peter Carey was born in New York City in 1938. In 1959 he entered the Dominican Order and in 1966 was ordained a priest. After graduate work in Rome, he left the Dominicans, but remained in Rome, teaching English there for five more years. He returned to New York in 1977. He worked first for Price Waterhouse and then for Citibank, becoming a vice president in 1987. In 1987 he also became an Episcopalian and in 1990, because of the AIDS epidemic, returned to the priesthood in the Episcopal Church. In 1994 he was diagnosed with chronic myelogenous leukemia and nearly died, but in 2000 he was fortunate enough to be the recipient of one of the first genetically engineered cancer drugs, and fully recovered. He served as vicar of St. Stephen's Woodlawn from 1991 to 1997 and from that time until the present has served as an assisting priest at the Church of the Holy Apostles in New York City, a parish noted for its service to the poor through the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen. This year, 2016, marks Father Carey's 50th anniversary of ordination.
