Father Julian

This past weekend we hopped on a plane with family to head west for 48 hours. The reason: my dad’s brother (he is one of thirteen children) was celebrating 50 years of being a priest in Colorado Springs.

We are very blessed to have a priest in the family. (Fun fact: My dad spent a year in the seminary before leaving. He met my mom shortly after.) Fr. J was a concelebrant for my wedding and my gelato eating partner in Rome when I visited during my college years.

I have fond memories of celebrating Sunday morning Mass, crowded into my grandma’s living room while still in my pajamas. It always was so special to me that I got to experience Mass in that sort of setting. So close and personal.

We all had a great weekend catching up with family from across the country to celebrate Father and this amazing accomplishment.
