Cheers from Boston.
It's bright, sunny, and cold today. Fr. Mike and I marched a large part of the Freedom Trial yesterday: Bunker (Brede's hill), the Old North Church (very evocative - my favorite), Paul Revere's house (from 1680, oldest surviving urban house in the US), Quincy Market, real Italian cannollis, (yum!) and real New England clam chowdah.
Not to mention real New Englanders . . . and the intrepid Christine from Raleigh, North Carolina, who wins the distance prize. It is amazing how many parishioners were not only born nearby but have spent their entire lives in this parish. So different from the hundreds of other parishes we've worked in.
This is an enthusiastic, vibrant parish that is doing some very creative things with Generations of Faith as you can see here. We gather at 6pm (along with a simple dinner provided by the parish) and spend the evening together wrestling with charisms. A fun, enthusiastic group.
