What a coincidence

I recently visited the school at my teaching parish and during my visit with one of the classes, one of the students asked which high school I went to. I grew up in Sioux Falls, SD and there is only one Catholic high school in town and I told the students that the school is named after Bishop Thomas O'Gorman (a brief biography about him from www.catholic-hierarchy.org). As soon as I said the name 'O'Gorman' the students began to whisper and eventually the teacher told me that one of the girls in the class is a distant relative of Bishop O'Gorman. A few years ago, that student and her family were able to visit the high school named after their beloved relative at an event called the 'Dakota Bowl'. I should also mention that O'Gorman high school has produced many vocations in the past few years. Currently there are five alumni of O'Gorman high school discerning a vocation to the priesthood. In my books, that's not too bad.
