Conferred with the Archdeacon on some of the details of an upcoming ordination.
Conferred with the administrator on some … well, administrative issues.
Hunted for some photos to send to the author of the “interview” article that I worked on yesterday. This was a dangerous endeavor, as it was easy to get distracted looking at pictures that were not germane to my mission.
Developed my homiletical message statement for Easter VII (Harrisburg and West Frankfort) into an outline from which I can create a draft the next time I work on it.
Lunch from TG, eaten at home.
Processed a stack of emails.

Prayed the evening office in the cathedral, but about an hour earlier than usual, owing to …
… an appointment with a layperson–a first interview to discuss discernment for ordination to the priesthood.
