The ceremony was part of Evening Prayer at the cathedral and after Bishop Libasci's homily, the 20 teenagers and about 10 adults were recognized for their work and achievements. The presenter read excerpts from the letters people wrote on their behalf and I was incredibly moved by the amazing faith and work our teenagers are doing. I always tell our students that they have such power and abilities and they don't have to wait until they are older to do extraordinary things for God and His Church.
Following the ceremony, Liam's mom (Katie '77) treated me, Liam, family members, and Mr. Sheehan '79 of our math department to dinner at the Puritan Backroom. We noticed that there was a political event but we never expected to see Sen. John McCain walk in! He went around to every table to talk to people and me being a political junkie took a picture with him. It was a wonderful cap to an amazing afternoon.
