I was thrilled to be invited to the parish High School's championship hockey game yesterday. Many of you who follow this blog know what an avid hockey fan I am. I had never been to a high school game and was very impressed with the skating abilities of these young men.
Unfortunately, "we" were defeated by Our Lady of Mount Carmel High School.
Here's a short video I took of the action.
Last night, I asked the folks at the mission if they wouldn't mind appearing on my blog and they agreed to my request. Here are some of the folks attending the mission.
I have so enjoyed spending time with this community of faith. This morning I spoke to two groups of juniors and seniors at the high school, focusing on baptism and confirmation. I don't usually speak to teenagers, but I hope it was beneficial for them.
The mission concludes tonight, then I fly to Chicago (hopefully) in the morning. Our offices back home closed at noon today because of the snowstorm; very unusual for our company. Then tomorrow night I fly (hopefully) to Baltimore for the Mid-Atlantic Congress.
Please pray for the safety of all travelers.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
