Father - are you still alive?

Some may be wondering if I'm still alive.

I apologize for not posting for a long time, but I've been on vacation.

For two weeks, I was in Colorado on a trip for high school students that my Dad has been leading for 35 years.

morning prayer, hiking, adventure, daily Mass, campfire reflections - it's an amazing experience.

Following the end of my Dad's trip, I immediately drove to St. Meinrad where we have our every other year gathering of priests of the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.  It is a beautiful opportunity to gather with brother priests and our Archbishop.  We share in good conversation, recreation time, we pray a lot together, concelebrate Mass together - very renewing!

And, beginning tomorrow afternoon, the remainder of my June vacation will focus on helping my brother Deacon Anthony Hollowell as he prepares to be ordained to the Priesthood of Jesus Christ this Saturday at 10 am at the Cathedral of Sts. Peter and Paul in Indianapolis.

Please keep the students and staff from my trip, the priests of the Archdiocese, and finally my brother in prayer during this month of June.

God bless!
