Thursday (All Souls)

  • Task planning at home, tough I got a bit of a late start out of the house.
  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Tried to handle a sudden flurry of emails on the fly.
  • Attended and participated in the semi-annual meeting of the Diocesan Trustees, who oversee our invested funds. We met with our investment advisor from St Louis.
  • Met with Fr Gene Stormer, a retired priest of the diocese who has done truckloads of supply, interim, and short-term work for us over the decades. He’s recently been Sunday supply at Christ the King, Normal, and we discussed some of the issues in the community.
  • Met briefly with the Chancellor over a couple of emerging concerns.
  • Attended the 12:15 Mass for All Souls Day in the cathedral chapel.
  • Lunch from McD’s, eaten at home.
  • Tied up a loose end with one of our Rectors, by email.
  • Processed some more late-arriving email.
  • Spent substantial exegetical time with the propers for Advent III, when I will preach at St Luke’s, Springfield on December 17.
  • Did a bit of physical desktop cleanup and conferred with the Archdeacon on ongoing administrative and pastoral concerns.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
