If there’s a good time to schedule a 6:15am departure from home, it’s on the morning of the fall time change. That diminished the trauma of having to show up at St Andrew’s, Edwardsville in time to preside and preach at their regular 8am celebration of the Eucharist. Between services, I had some valuable catechetical time with a rather large group of baptizands and confirmands and their coterie. At the 10:00 liturgy, we baptized one infant and one eight-year old, confirmed four adults (mostly young) and received four adults. What a harvest! After the coffee hour reception, I spent some time with members of the Mission Leadership Team and the Search Committee (priest-in-charge Fr Ralph McMichael is retiring soon after the turn of the new year). Home at 2:45.
