Final Vows...


This past weekend I was fortunate enough to get to go to Los Angeles and spend time with my brother, Jim, my parents, my aunt Eileen, Aunt Kathleen and Uncle Stan and my GREAT Aunt Denny. We all gathered to celebrate Jim's final vows for the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). Over the past 18 years I have gotten to watch as my brother transform into one of the most amazing priests I have ever met. I am truly blessed that he is my brother, friend, shoulder to cry on and at times spiritual advisor for myself and my family.

It was an awesome weekend of activities that included Disneyland on Friday for Jim and I. On Saturday we all went to the Cathedral in Los Angeles which was amazingly beautiful. We also go to see UCLA and the LMU campuses. Sunday were the vows and lots of festivities because that is how the Jesuits roll. :) We met so many great Jesuits and friends of Jim throughout the weekend. All in all it was a great trip and I am so glad I was able to be a part of his final vows.
