Archdiocesan priest provides calm reassurances in the path of Hurricane Irma

Father Tom Kirchhoefer volunteered to assist with Amateur Radio communications at the Pinellas County Emergency Operations Center after Hurricane Irma struck Florida's Gulf Coast.

Archdiocesan priest Father Tom Kirchhoefer celebrated Sunday Mass as usual, but Sunday, Sept. 10, was anything but usual.

Father Kirchhoefer described the scene as "surreal" in the lead-up to Hurricane Irma: homes and business boarded up, gas shortages, empty store shelves. And the hurricane still hadn't hit.
