So... on Fr. Thomas de Harley...

Yesterday night, the 2nd grade PSR folks at his parish made their first confession with him, Fr B, Fr P and a Fr. Savchuck (sp?) of whom I am not familiar... It was lovely and cute and inspirational, and I was pumped that none of the priests were able to attend the cookies and punch reception afterwards because all of us old folks monopolized their time.

BUT

I felt bad for the three aforementioned priests because all of the kids (save for maybe 5) sprinted to get in line with Fr. Thomas. They all had to be shuttled, many against their will to the other three priests. It was a moving, yet very 7 and 8 year old moment.
