During Easter Triduum, the seminary sends us home to help at our home parishes. As a Diocese transplant I wasn’t able to go home to family, but I did return to my adopted home parish, St. Mary’s in College Station. Most of my friends are graduated by this point, so I got to spend more time with my brother and the few close friends I have left. It was a weekend of great joy, gratitude, and affirmation of my current path. One particular moment of affirmation is worth sharing.
