Father David's Farewell

Fr. David McKillin, St. Scholastica's chaplain for 13 years, will be retiring to Subiaco Abbey on June 28, and the sisters honored him at a celebratory dinner last night. Sister Elizabeth, who had written a song to the tune of "Yankee Doodle Dandy" and Sister Pat led the other sisters in a sing-a-long; and Sister Miriam, who read a heartfelt note. Sisters Stephanie, Regina, and Madeline C. also offered tributes, and after dinner, Father David opened his presents and cards. The sisters stood to offer him a blessing as Father begins a new phase of Benedictine life.
