My day...

A rundown...

I met with the music director at 9, we talked about several items, including:

1. The Corpus Christi "event" this weekend ("40 Hours" followed by a Eucharistic Procession on Sunday, in Piqua, from church to church).
2. Several special events I wanted him to begin thinking about for later this year.
3. Assorted parish business.

After that, I was supposed to work on my homily, but that didn't happen.

I dropped by the school around 11:30 to discuss some business with the principal, and to pick up a list of the school board members because I needed to send them a letter.

Back at the office, I sent out some letters to various folks on various projects, including an important meeting in about a week, another meeting I want to schedule for June, and handled some phone calls related to the Corpus Christi event. Lots of details...

A meeting at 1 pm with some volunteers who help me in the sacristy of one of the parishes.

A meeting with the coordinator of religious education about confirmation for next year and related issues.

A parishioner stopped by with a concern, we talked. Several more phone calls, a number of emails; opened mail. Wrote up some notes from an important meeting a few weeks back, got to this late, but finally got it done, circulated it via email around to other folks for input and next step.

Realized I forgot to shave this morning, I look a little fuzzy (actually that came earlier in the day).

Checked in with staff members about various items.

Some more phone calls.

Browsed a litte online just now, taking a pause before I go over for the Bible study at 7, then I have a meeting with the Knights of St. John around 8:30, I hope to be home by 9:30 or so.

This is actually a little bit lighter than usual, not as much stuff on my desk. "The Pile" has shrunk ever so slightly...

I suppose it is a blessing to be busy and have so much to do... as long as God doesn't bless us too much! I like the bit about forgetting to shave! Keep up the good work! Keep smiling and God bless! Padre Steve, SDB
