This evening was my much-anticipated going-away party from St. Thomas a Becket parish. As my readers know, I have been reassigned (since September 1) to neighbouring St. Luke parish. But the old parish wanted to give me a send-off, and as expected it was a blast. My parents even came down from Ottawa for the event.
There were many beautiful speeches and gifts, including a wonderful scrapbook with messages from parishioners, and some truly unique — my own action figure! Instead of “Harry Potter” I was presented with “Fr. Tommy Power”, complete with its own collector’s box. Isn’t it priceless?
Special thanks to all who organized the evening — it truly was one of the most memorable of my life. May God bless all of you!
