**I love the devotional practices of the Catholic church, its prayers and devotions, Olmstead said.**
I think many people do love the prayers and devotionals. They just don’t admit it.
Mr. Olmstead is assigned to St. Patrick parish in Anchorage as Pastoral Associate while he is finishing seminary. He gave the homily on Sunday and it was really impressive. He's a great speaker. His assignment to St. Pat's is probably because the pastor there is also a married, former Protestant minister.
That's been my experience, too.
