Origin story

Everyone loves a good origin story, the trend of rebooting superhero franchises proves that, and it just so happens that Fr. Kenny has one as well!

We had a Christmas fair at Emmanuel Church in Great River, NY where I serve as priest in charge.  I was out of town during the fair, but when I got back, all the unsold items were in boxes around the parish hall.  Of course, I decided to see if anything good was lying around and what to my wandering eyes did appear?  A priest “Barbie” doll complete with vestments in a plastic bag (with hangers).


He is ready for all seasons!

I do not know where he came from, he isn’t saying, but his outfits were obviously handmade with care (even an amice for goodness sake).  We had a little contest on Facebook to name him, and ever since, he has been by my side.  With greying temples, a permanently concerned expression, and a hastily drawn on goatee, he is a great helper.  People seemed to like to see our exploits on Facebook, so now, we have a blog!  Why not?  It is free after all.  Anyway, I will be posting photos of our adventures periodically, and perhaps I’ll post other thoughts and reflections on God, ministry, Jesus, and life in general.  Enjoy!
