Did you know Fr. Charlie is an avid photographer?

Icebreaker Q & A with our Pastor:

Q: What's up with the Beret? How did it become your signature hat?
A: I lost most of my hair when I was a young man. When I started to get sunspots on my head, the doctor told me to always wear a hat when I went outside.  So I just graduated from a billed baseball hat (which can not be worn indoors) to a beret, which can be worn inside or out.

Q: What is your favorite time of year? Religious or seasonal?
A: Easter week, the first days after the great Easter celebrations are for me, a special time of peace and rejoicing.  Because I love to photograph nature, I really enjoy springtime when birds are active and the flowers are blooming.

Q: Mac or PC?
A: Mac. I hate to gush over electronic gadgets, but Apple products are a delight to use.  I'm hooked.

Q: What inspires you?
A: The Bible, repentant sinners, wildflower covered hills, luminous sunsets and bluegrass picking.

Q: What is it about photography that you like so much?
A: It is a thrill to photograph a landscape or wildlife and capture the essence of its beauty for myself and for others to enjoy.  I also like the technical challenge of getting the camera to do what I want it to do.

Q: What do you enjoy most about being a priest?
A: To name just a few, I love to be in His presence on the altar; to be an instrument for someone who wants to return to the Lord and have his/her sins forgiven; and to be inspired as I preach the Word of God.

The Making of the New Evangelization video
Filmed September 26, 2012 at Skyline Productions.  The video script went through multiple versions to get it just right, this would allow the video to flow smoothly as a final product.  Fr. Charlie recorded this in just 3 takes.  Also edited at Skyline Productions, it was completed just a few weeks after filming.  See a behind the scenes photo below.
