My first impression of Fr. Kilian was that he was a unique individual. I loved the way that he embraced every situation. When I became Parish Manager, it was so refreshing to have a boss that loved to be involved in the day to day operations. It seemed to be very apparent to everyone that Fr. Kilian and I make a great team.
The first function I attended with father was the chili cook off and Pie auction sponsored by St Vincent De Paul. Jan Consolino was chosen to hit father in the face with a pie. I stood there, holding his new sports coat and glasses. Then handing him napkins to wipe off with so he could put his jacket and glasses back on. Parishioners’ that were in attendance were saying” look, Fr. Kilian has his own Radar O’Reilly”.
I will truly miss the bond that we have built, but God has other plans for him, so I wish him well.
