Fr. Thomas was in the middle of a conversation with the ushers when he saw Henry Gilmore in the parking lot. "I just couldn't believe it," said Fr. Thomas. "I never thought I'd see him again!" When the pastor saw that he might miss his shot at speaking with Henry he began to run towards the prodigal parishioner. "When I began my run, I noticed that my cassock was preventing me from making any type of stride, so I decided to be bold." Fr. Thomas hiked up his cassock in order to run at a faster pace.
"When I finally got there I realized that it wasn't actually him. Better luck next time I guess."
