Jesuit Celebrates Halloween By Dressing Up In “Priest Costume”
Cincinnati, OH––Hoping to surprise his family and friends at Holy Trinity Parish’s annual Halloween Breakfast this morning, local Jesuit Walter Allen arrived dressed as a Roman Catholic Priest. ”It’s always been a fun little idea of mine to wear one of these things,” Allen said, shortly after he surprised those gathered at the breakfast. “He walked right up to us and asked if we wanted him to bless our food,” Allen’s mother, Suzy Allen, recalled, “but none of us had any clue that it was Walt in that thing, so we were like, ‘sure, why not?’” But the Allen family soon became suspicious when Allen forgot the meal-time prayer midway through. “That’s when we knew it was Walt,” his mother said.
