Dear David:

III cheers IV Father Mike "Catfish" Mireau & his loyal buddy, the pooch Nemo. His Christian/Catholic outreach performed in a modern, esoteric style is certainly reminiscent of a young Father Michael Troy. Adapting modern themes and having himself and his dog Nemo dress up like superheroes sure influences, relaxes and calms troubled students.

My congrats to Mrs. Hanneke Brooymans & her reportage team at the Edmonton Journal. I like that the Catholics had the guts to appoint Fthr. Mireau as Disrict Chaplain. An ordained priest in the role who can say lines from science fiction films, in an inspired manner. What a truly unique choice. I sure wish the church & the good Father best of luck in his future ministerial endeavours and entreaties of youth, Catholic & non-Catholic alike.
