By Agnieszka Ruck • Catholic News Service • Posted March 27, 2019 DELTA, British Columbia (CNS) — A few years ago, Deacon Dileep Athaide could never have guessed he’d become a frequent visitor on the immense coal and container ships dotting the horizon in Delta and Vancouver.

“It’s only three years that I’ve been doing this, but it feels like 10 years — in a good way,” Deacon Athaide, 69, told The B.C. Catholic, newspaper of the Archdiocese of Vancouver, while on board a Japanese coal carrier at Westshore Terminals...

His Cree name was Little Buffalo that Runs Against the Herd. His mother and sisters called him Manie – little man – because he was the only boy in the family. Story c...
