    I got to watch it with Ev in her bedroom. Loved it! I thought the priest there was very gifted as a homilist and had such a warm connection with the parishioners. The church was packed!+

    Told myself no to Mass today with a windchill below zero and frostbite possible in 5 minutes. Instead I turned on computer to find you and Fr. Uni two friends of mine and Berkley College of music. Thanks.

    Thank you, Evelyn. You have the very best nephew, priest in the Archdiocese of Boston who is an inspiration to everyone.
    Fr. Uni is a true Shepherd to his parishioners, and you are an inspiration to all of us, our SCN Community.
