Up and out in Mattoon in time to continue the southbound journey begun last night by around 0845. Arrived in Mt Carmel about 20 minutes ahead of the 1100 meeting with the MLT from St John the Baptist. It was a standard vacancy consultation, in light of the fact that Fr Hazelett is retiring at the end of the month. There have been too many of these conversations lately! Lunch with two of the MLT members, then back on the road. Arrived home at 6:20.
