The Presentation of Christ in the Temple
It was a joy to preside at the Celebration of a New Ministry for Fr Ian Wetmore as Vicar of St Michael's, O'Fallon. Bishop Ed Salmon acquitted himself admirably as homilist and the feast of our Lord's Presentation in the Temple was duly observed. The people of St Michael's had a long wait (thanks to Homeland Security's suspicion of Canadians), but St Michael's is already prospering under Fr Ian's leadership.
