On a 'Mystery Man' at Prayer in a New Orleans Church

"Joe Delery is a lifelong Catholic and has spent a career with the New Orleans Police Department using his 6-foot-3 frame to protect and serve with the best of them, intuitively knowing how to defuse a tense standoff with a disarming gift of gab.

"When he was a lanky freshman at De La Salle High School in 1972, he went out for the Cavaliers' JV football team, in part because of a backhanded comment he had received from a teacher at Christian Brothers School, Don Rowan, an old football coach from New Iberia, Louisiana. . . .

"Still, years later, Delery made a connection to football - in perhaps the most unlikely of places: St. Rita Church in New Orleans."

A recent Catholic News Services article reported on Mr. Delery's  connection with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
