Small World

Father Ed Poppish walked into the Vigil last night and met Scout Patrick for the first time.  Over 20 years ago, Patrick’s parents were married and Father Ed played the piano at their wedding.  Father Ed lives in Rome….what a small world.

  1. Aloha Fr. Ed!

    Here’s a little more of the story about our relationship: Father Ed and Patrick’s father, Jose, were in the Sacred Hearts formation house in preparation for the seminary for three years together and became close friends. When it came time for our wedding, we asked Fr. Ed to play the organ for us so that he could participate. On the day of the wedding, he was a special Godsend because the soloist who was to sing our meditation song was a no show and he played a most beautiful piece in it’s place. We miss Fr. Ed since he left Hawaii, but are glad through this event that we had found each other again.
