Some footage of the fellas hanging out on some downtime in the Catholic diocese in Charlotte North Carolina….I hear every night at 6 is nail painting pajama party..rumor has it those rascals like to jump on the beds and have a pillow fight – followed by a dog pile…oh boys will be boys..
They are always looking to serve, even on days off. It’s as if they can’t get enough of just loving on people-especially those little guys..
Some volunteer at the mall as a big furry animal, some are out on skate patrol checking all the local playgrounds to make sure the children have someone watching them….
The guys are willing to do whatever it takes – even potty training and changing duty at the local mall just to give the parents a few minutes to shop alone.When asked if they ever get tired of serving the response from all were amazing. The skating priest really summed it all up – ” Tired of it? This is what keeps us going! As a matter of fact I think I speak for all my fellow priests when I say that a good 75% of us are here just for the kids!”
Ooh! I think I see Bugs Bunny at the mall on potty duty today! It’s a dirty, dirty job. Very few people could even think about doing that!
This warrior below takes skate patrol very seriously. As a matter of fact he told the neighborhood watch program ” I got this” and gave them all a break . This means the guy has to monitor all the playgrounds himself. You know to make sure all the little ones have a set of eyes on them
Confession duty can be a tedious task as you might imagine. So each priest is asked what age group they prefer to hear confession from. Oh, look this one decided on…yep
I cannot emphasize enough just how much these priests need to be recognized-for what they do. I don’t think people really have any idea what goes on behind the scenes. All they see is the confessions and rituals but not the overtime put in.
