RIP: Rev. Harold "Dinty" Moore (+2002)

A personal note:  on September 8, 2002, our Diocese lost an incredible priest, Fr. Harold "Dinty" Moore--a "happy, happy" priest of God who made an impression wherever he ministered, and whose praises are still sung by his parishioners.  He was a tremendous example of sanctity and a good mix of Gospel charity and uncompromising Faith, and was largely responsible for my own priestly vocation.  

He was also pastor here at St. Anthony's in Follansbee from 1964 to 1973.

(At left: Fr. Moore giving me my diploma at 8th Grade Graduation in 1994.  I often wonder if he knew the seeds he planted that would blossom into a priestly vocation...)

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.  May he rest in peace.  And may his soul, and the souls of all the Faithful Departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.  Amen.
