Priest recalls Nepal quake By Jennifer Burke/Catholic Courier

The priest, who is pastor of Catholic Community of the Blessed Trinity in Wolcott, Red Creek and Fair Haven, had departed Rochester April 16, bound for an adventure-filled vacation in Nepal. An avid backpacker, Father Tayag had arranged to trek from the town of Lukla to Mount Everest Base Camp, but when he landed in Lukla April 17, he had no idea just how much adventure he was about to experience.

“Although we could hear what might be happening in the mountains, we really couldn’t see whether there was something coming down to us. Instinctively we ran, not knowing if we were running to find safe ground or running to meet our death,” he said. “Fortunately there were no avalanches where we were.”
