Saturday (Conception of the BVM)
On the road at 9am to Trinity, Mt Vernon, arriving just before noon, where, with the liturgy beginning at 1pm, we ordained Bill Howard to the Sacred Order of Priests. Once again, there was an excellent turnout of clergy, and the church was packed. What a happy occasion. The post-liturgical festivities in the parish hall were so engaging that we didn't get out of there until nearly 4, which put us home in the neighborhood of 6:30. A full day.
