What a weekend!

     In the first of a series of posts, I will attempt to share some reflections of a remarkably busy weekend in my life.  It involved two major events - my 50th High School Reunion celebration as well as the Ordination to the Permanent Diaconate of four men for the Diocese of Greensburg.

     First, the reunion celebration for the class of 1965 of Saint Vincent Preparatory School in Latrobe, hosted by Saint Vincent College and Archabbey, began last Thursday evening with an informal gathering of eleven of the class of 1965 for dinner and an evening of remembering and catching up.  We gathered at a local restaurant at the airport in Latrobe and shared a great meal and great friendships.  We were joined by the wives of most of the guys, and spent a great deal of time catching up and reintroducing ourselves to each other's spouses.  While dining, we were visited by Archabbot Douglas Nowicki and Brother Norman Hipps, the president of the college as well as Father Paul Taylor, all of whom were meeting with another group.


     I've included a picture of the table as well as one of the group which included Bob Baluh, Bill Hisker, Tom Jenkins, Matt Kristofik, Norm Mihm, Marty Mullen, Chuck Peters, Bill Pierret, Rich Stillwagon, Mike Vudragovich and myself.  These are great guys, and on Friday and Saturday we were joined by a number of other classmates.

    More on the reunion the next post.
