Thursday (Our Lady of Guadalupe)

  • Task planning at home.
  • Debriefed after my trip with the Archdeacon and the Administrator, even as we processed the devastating news of the sudden death of Mary Donkin, wife of our treasurer Jim Donkin. 
  • Morning Prayer in the office (too cold in the cathedral).
  • Prepared to celebrate and preach at the regular 12:15pm cathedral Mass.
  • Replied to an important text message.
  • Examined and processed the materials of a priest interested in one of our vacant cures.
  • Presided and preached at the cathedral chapel Mass, celebrating the feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
  • Lunch with the Archdeacon and the Provost at the Sangamo Club.
  • Prepared a letter of recommendation for a former parishioner.
  • Spoke at some length by phone with the Executive Director of the Living Church Foundation (one of the boards on which I serve).
  • Talked with the Archdeacon regarding an emerging possibility for priestly ministry "on the ground" in one of our isolated parishes. 
  • Administrivia (printed and signed a form conveying my consent for another diocese to elect of bishop).
  • Refined and printed a working text of my homily for this Sunday, Advent III, at St Paul's, Carlinville.
  • More administrivia (having to do with diocesan website).
  • Evening Prayer in the office.
