Oops, it’s been a while since I posted anything to this blog. And it is not like nothing is going on – rather, too much is going on and I just haven’t found a regular habit of posting yet.
So what has been going on since the last post? Well, there was Pumpkinfest. Our World Youth Day Group sold 325 Dozen KrispyKremes out of the local Knight’s of Columbus tent. We have a group of 21 going from our two parishes, including a couple of college kids.
I visited the local jail for a bible study. We have a great group of people who go out to the jail on a regular basis, doing a variety of crafts, bible studies, etc. I am always struck by how not-so-very-different the jail population is from the college kids. They are mostly the same age group, have similar interests and issues, similar questions. For many of the young women in jail, if it hadn’t been for drugs, they could very well be in college now.
We are also running another session of Welcoming Catholics Home in our parish – a wonderful way of inviting people who have left the Church for whatever reason back to the faith. It is a great opportunity to listen to people share their faith journey and to walk alongside of them for a while.
Then of course there are the myriads of day-to-day tasks: advertising programs, meeting with students, answering emails, studying and going to meetings…
I will try to do better to add content to the blog. It is still a work in progress, as are we all.
