Franciscan University in Steubenville copes with fatal crash

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette headline today about a treagedy in Stuebenville WV. It begins with a reminder of the ministry we're to be about.

"It was his day off, and the Rev. Dean Borgmeyer had plans for Tuesday -- shopping, buying supplies for incoming students at Weirton Madonna High School, maybe even catching a movie. But the day got away from him while he dithered in the rectory at St Joseph the Worker Catholic Church in Weirton Heights. He wasn't sure he wanted to fight construction-zone traffic or empty his gas tank for an unnecessary trip. He couldn't think of a film he really wanted to see. Just before 5 p.m., his telephone rang.
