St John

  • Usual AM routine. Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Debriefed with the Archdeacon on various matters professional and personal.
  • Responded (in Spanish) to a new email message Bishop Jorge Aguilar of our companion diocese of Peru.
  • Contacted (via email) the priest in a parish where I'm scheduled to be on a Sunday in January just to touch base on some of the details of the visitation.
  • Took an incoming phone call from a priest from outside the diocese who was (benignly) seeking some information about someone inside the diocese.
  • After looking at a couple of other examples of the species, mentally charted a course toward an extemporized homily on the Feast of the Holy Name of Jesus, this Sunday at St Barnabas', Havana.
  • Scheduled an appointment with my eye doctor for an exam next week. My current glasses are not really working for me, on a number of level, and I'm due for a checkup anyway.
  • Spoke by phone with a priest of the diocese over an emerging pastoral and administrative matter.
  • Attended Mass in the cathedral chapel for the feast day of St John, Apostle & Evangelist
  • Lunch from La Bamba, eaten at home.
  • One of my big responsibilities as Chair of the Nashotah House Board of Directors is to lead an annual performance review of/for the Dean & President. Toward that end, I spent a good chunk of my afternoon reviewing a handful of articles on the subject and composing an email to my fellow directors proposing a methodology for moving ahead with the process.
  • Read and responded to an Ember Day letter from one of our postulants.
  • Took care of another couple of bits of administrivia by email.
  • Evening Prayer in the cathedral.
