Fr. Joseph Tyrrell
For the past 4 years, Fr. Joe Tyrrell has served as Master of Ceremonies at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City -- and in his spare time, has trained for multiple ING New York City Marathons to benefit charity. He is running his 4th ING-NYC Marathon to support both the MS Foundation and Catholic Charities New York -- a federation of human welfare agencies that supports New Yorkers in need, non-Catholic and Catholic alike.
Fr. Tyrrell has integrated his marathon training into his ministry. He celebrates the annual "Runners Mass" at St. Patrick's Cathedral the night before the Marathon each year, and often trains for running while listening to the Bible on his iPod.
"My vocation is to bring the Good News," he says. "Any type of training that I do is a part of that."
