The main things:
- Opened a homiletical file on Proper 22 (prayer, identifying the propers and pasting them into a document, making initial notes after a careful reading.
- Met for an hour with Fr John Thorpe, new interim Vicar of St Michael’s, O’Fallon–just a routine introductory talk-through between bishop and pastor.
- Initial get-to-know-you meeting with someone at the very beginning of the ordination discernment process.
- Moved the ball a few more yards downfield in lining up “elections and appointments.”
