I am continuing to collect more notices. I would really like to see more global/international (outside USA) notices, but it's almost impossible for me to find them because of language barriers. If you have found non-English-language notices, please send them to me as PDFs along with the original URL and the author (last name, first name), article title, publication name, and date of publication. Thanks!

 

 

 

 

 

 



Special thanks to Sarah Siladi for helping round up these articles.

A note about copyrights: CatholicBoy.com is a library and archive of information about Jim Carroll. Because online information tends to "vaporize" and disappear from its original location, I preserve it in PDFs and web pages.
