Purnell pitches, hits William Penn softball past St. Elizabeth, 4-3

By

Dialog reporter

 

WILMINGTON – Indira Purnell scattered five hits and struck out nine, and she hit a solo home run, to lead William Penn to a 4-3 win in nonconference softball on May 15 at Canby Park.

A strong wind blew in from right field throughout the day, wreaking havoc on fly balls and resulting in a centerfielder catching one in the infield for an out, but Purnell used it to her advantage leading off the fourth. She sent a shot over the leftfielder’s head, with the wind taking the ball away from the fielder. Purnell never stopped running and easily beat the throw home to put the Colonials ahead, 2-0.

While a priest is in parish ministry, his salary and expenses are paid by the parish. When he retires, the Diocesan Priests’ Retirement Fund takes care of Father’s needs. Read more »

An ordination journey nears its destination

By

Dialog Editor

When Rich Jasper recently traced the course of his life that lead to the priesthood, he said, “As you can see, the Lord writes straight with crooked lines.”

However, in an era when men are often ordained beyond their 20s, Jasper’s vocation path of ardently practicing his faith, teaching it to young people, and sharing it with parishioners and with the needy has had a clear route to the altar in retrospect.

Jasper, 42, will be ordained a priest for the Diocese of Wilmington by Bishop Malooly on May 20 at the Cathedral of St. Peter. Read more »
