Men in Black Vocations Basketball Game

His Excellency Bishop Burbidge and Fr. Shlesinger the new Vocations Director for the Diocese of Raleigh!

What an incredible start to a great vocations evening that ended in prayer at the Cathedral before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. Thanks to Deacon DeCandia and George Lally for the work in making this happen - it was a lot of fun. And a very important thanks to His Excellency Bishop Burbidge for being such an integral part of the game - as a referee! The turn out for the game was fantastic, matched only by the enthusiasm and energy of the crowd. For a full write up, plus video footage go to this link. As to my thoughts about the game. Well, it wasn't pretty in the first half, but the second half was pretty exciting. I do regret that the seminarians and priests lost - but then again we all need a good dose of humility from time to time - nothing like being beaten by high schoolers. Oh yeah, Bishop Burbidge made perfect calls every time.
