25 Years Ago

Sherry Weddell and I entered the Catholic Church at Sacred Heart parish in Seattle, in the shadow of the Space Needle.

Happy Anniversary, Sherry! What a long strange trip it’s been!

Sherry has written a lovely account of that long-ago day and the days that led up to it in “The Advent of the Three Miracles“.

    Happy Anniversary to you both! Perhaps you could serenade her with Kip’s song -a favorite around here, btw.

    Twenty-five years on and the salt hasn’t lost any of its flavor! Best wishes to both of you!

    Wow, I did not realize you entered at Sacred Heart! That’s the parish I went to when I lived in Seattle. Of course, I think there was only 3 or 4 parishes that weren’t Episcopalian in disguise around that time.

    Rejoice in the Lord always! Was it on Gaudete Sunday, as it was for me? Forty-five years ago, on December 17, 1967, I entered the Catholic Church. You guys missed the _really_ strange leg of the journey, though (1967-1987). ;-)

      Mid-80s Seattle was plenty strange, but I expect you have us beat. :) We entered on the fourth Sunday of Advent. A lovely day.

    For those who are interested, I wrote up one part of the story “The Advent of the Three Miracles”.

    I think of that December as the “Advent of the Three Miracles”. One was the miracle of getting in – into the Church, that is, without finishing RCIA and on 10 days notice and at Christmas time.

    Another was the miracle of Anna . . .

    I’m currently reading Sherry’s “Forming Intentional Disciples.” Great book and very helpful to me. Happ Anniversary to you both, from a fellow convert.
