Gary Kastl, Rector of Holy Family Cathedral and President of Bishop Kelly High School, provided words of hope and perseverance in the Lord, challenging the audience to recognize the most common sin we fall into and to root our faith in the Eucharist. No one else can give you virtue but you; you have to work it out in your relationship with Our Lord Jesus Christ. The parish is the reflection of the interior life of His people. That is the reason we come to this campus, to meet the living Jesus in the Holy Eucharist and in His Word and in His people.

The Empty House (Part Two)
In the fall of 1975, Miles McFarland expresses his interest to his best friend Zach about the unsolved case surrounding the abduction and murder of 5-year-old Edward McAllister only ten years earlier on Oct. 29, 1965. According to a newspaper accounting of the incident written by Scott Rodebush, a staff writer for the Pinewood Flats Ledger who was assigned to the case, "Edward was abducted from his front porch where he had been playing with his toys only after his brothers Michael and Ruben stepped inside for just a few minutes, which would be the last time either brother would see the boy alive." This fictional short story written and narrated by Carlos Michael is inspired by a one-paragraph email submitted by Gary Christensen who related his own story of an empty house located directly behind his in Omaha, Nebraska whose basement he did investigate.
