Hey I Used to Go to School With That Guy

Now this is pretty amazing. Dave Beaumont was in my class (’78) when we both attended “Our Lady Queen of Angels” high school seminary in San Fernando, CA. I haven’t seen or heard from him since those long ago days, though I did hear from some classmates of ours that he had entered the Capuchin order.

And just now, I see Dave turn up in, of all places, the Washington Post as Fr. Dave Beaumont, O.F.M., Cap. I’m not surprised at all to learn that he’s a dedicated friar engaged in some wonderful, grueling, sacrificial, and quite dangerous work, ministering to his flock in rural northern Mexico — right in the heart of where the drug-related violence is raging. I doubt you’ll ever see this post, Dave, but you sure can count on my prayers for protection and guidance. May God reward you. Siempre adelante!
