Fr. King finally laid to rest
After the storm and its aftermath forced postponement for the burial of Father King, a small group gathered for the simple ceremony. The grave first needed to be drained of water, an apt gesture for our cruise-loving priest.
One of the grounds crew, new to the staff, mentioned he had met a Maryknoller who served as chaplain on cruises and who took pictures. When we pointed out that the grave he had dug was for that same priest, he was visibly saddened.
