To Edmonton and back

I just got back from a couple of days at the seminary in Edmonton. Before that, we had a funeral in Macklin, which meant that it got pretty busy for a few days (I presided at the vigil, and a priest came in for the funeral Mass). So, it was good to get away for a bit and to have spiritual direction. Some of the seminarians were wondering what the heck I was doing, though – most of them leave the seminary to go on holidays, and here I was, coming back! Oh well.

Tomorrow, I’m helping out with the Macklin confirmation retreat. I think there are between 30 and 40 grade 6ers for confirmation this year, which is a pretty amazing number for a town of about 1300. I’m giving two sessions and one shorter talk, so I’d better get to bed. Have a good day and keep your stick on the ice!

  1. I assume you’ve finished those talks for the confirmation retreat then ;). It’s funny how you leave and the procrastination bug still endures.

    Too bad you’re missing Stargatefest tomorrow :D.

    Heh… well, in this case I can honestly say it wasn’t procrastination. I had been working on that for a while, but then the funeral came up and pushed everything back. C’est la vie!

  3. Ahh, confirmation retreats. Some things make me so glad that I don’t give talks :-)

    I’m glad you had a good, refreshing time at the seminary last week.
