More of the Lord's work going on this weekend. After a Trinity High School board meeting last Thursday evening, followed by a CCD teachers' meeting at the parish, I drove 2 hours down to DC, to stay overnight in the priests' faculty residence at Catholic University. After teaching at the university for three hours on Friday morning, it was back to the parish for afternoon some meetings before heading out to Altoona Friday evening for the birthday of a good friend. Back to the parish on Saturday morning to finish the weekend homily and make some home visits. Confessions, Mass, and an appointment Saturday evening, and this morning three Masses, then the installation of officers for our parish Knights of Columbus council (photo below), an appointment with a Messiah College student, and then a "pastoral visit" to the Eagle Scout project which is adding a beautiful prayer path to our parish campus (see the progress in the second photo below). This afternoon, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy in the church, then down to York to visit a brother priest who is hospitalized, and lastly a drive up to Wilkes-Barre this afternoon for dinner with a friend who was Dean of the Law School I attended. Tomorrow morning, while in Wilkes-Barre, I'll visit the graves of my parents before heading back to the parish for some afternoon meetings. Then the week will start up again.
