we had a simple dinner and fellowship after the filipino mass presided by fr ariel. seminarian friends beto and ervin served in the mass. and what a great coincidence that fr jo was in town for a meeting. his birthday was a week ago so it was a little party for him. cynthia brought cake and our little one seriously participated in singing happy birthday much to the delight of the celebrant. he blowed the candles, too. 🙂
it was good to see both fr ariel and fr jo who initially met at our daughter’s wedding five years ago. it was a fun evening – good food, lots of laughter and great company!
