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!
