Monday (St Brigid)
Spent the morning with a weight and treadmill workout, then processing emails and organizing tasks. We loaded up the car and Brenda and I hit the road southbound at 12:30. We arrived at Kings House Retreat Center in Belleville at 2:00, unloaded the car, got settled in our room, and began to get organized in the chapel to provide music for retreat worship. In due course, I drove to the airport in St Louis, about a thirty minute drive, to retrieve Fr Kevin Martin, our 2016 clergy retreat conductor. The retreat formally began with 5:30 Evensong, followed by dinner, and then, at 7:30, Kevin's first address. Then Compline and social time.
