This Week in Haven
Reverend Driscoll has been an upstanding fixture in Haven for a great many years. His death this past week has been a wave of shock to us all that has had a ripple effect across our town.
The Rev has shepherded the flock here for most of his adult life, having come to Haven straight out of seminary as a newly ordained minister. His firm stand on what it means to be one of God's chosen people has often as not been a source of controversy, but overall has won him the love and support of his congregation. He has been known to speak out against the "troubled" people amongst us and has pushed the people to take action against those who have been "damned by God". Most think he speaks metaphorically, but many have taken his words to heart and have acted against those they see as "abominations of nature".
Despite the controversial nature of his tenure here, Reverend Driscoll was dearly loved by the people of Haven and has done many good works for the poor and downcast within his parish. His programs to feed the hungry and clothe the children have been very successful during this time of recession, and his private counselling sessions have done wonders for many a needful person. His funeral service will undoubtedly be well attended, and he will be laid to rest in a place of honor in the parish cemetery.
