the rev j thomas heron: Philadelphia Metropolis
Metropolis offers another story in our Day in the Life series, narrative about the daily life of special and ordinary people. In this installment, Mike Mallowe offers a portrait of the Rev. J. Thomas Heron, a Roman Catholic priest, who has served in the archdiocese for 34 years. It's a story that offers a a passionate defense of the work of priests and serves as an antidote to the lurid tales of sexual abuse and cover ups in the church.
