A week of anniversaries and memories for me.
46 years ago tonight (June 8) I sat with my parents in the old St. Mary Seminary Chapel and received my Master of Divinity Degree.
About 14 hours later (June 9) my classmates and I knelt before Bishop Issenmann and promised obedience to him and his successors.
43 years ago Tuesday (June 11), my dad suddenly was called to heaven. 26 years ago Friday (June 14) my mom went to join dad as we sang “Be not afraid” by her bedside.
The last 46 years have not always been easy; but by the grace of God and the love of my family and Church family, I can definitely say it definitely has been worth it.
Thank you, people of St. Matthias for accompanying me on this journey!
