Saturday (St Wenceslas)

  • Out of my office encampment and in the cathedral reading Morning Prayer by 0730.
  • Down to McD’s for a quick breakfast, then back to prepare cathedral chancel area for the Cursillo Ultreya Mass, mentally prepare a homily, and otherwise get ready. Took a few minutes to process the collection hard copy items on my desk.
  • Celebrated and preached the Ultreya Mass, anticipating the feast of St Michael & All Angels.
  • Attended a nearly three-hour Standing Committee meeting. We had a lot to talk about. Most of the time was devoted to the first “annual review” of the bishop’s ministry. Yes, it was actually my idea, and my mantra at this moment is “There is no such thing as bad feedback; all information is useful.”
  • Walked to lunch at nearby Boone’s with four members of the committee.
  • Came back and decompressed with an episode of the show “Britannia” on Amazon Prime video.
  • Signed and sealed certificates for two transitional deacons who are about to be ordained to the priesthood.
  • Wrote out notes to clergy and spouses with nodal events in October.
  • Refined and printed my homily for Proper 21, tomorrow at St Stephen’s, Harrisburg.
  • Performed necessary cosmetic surgery on a sermon text for Proper 21 (next Sunday at the two Marion County Eucharistic Communities,
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Headed south around 5:30, arriving at the Hampton Inn in Marion just before 9:00, with a longish stop for dinner at the Cracker Barrel in Mt Vernon.
