Wednesday in Holy Week

  • Morning Prayer in the cathedral.
  • Prepped for the midday Mass.
  • Updated and revised the text of an Easter homily from a earlier for use this weekend at the cathedral.
  • Participated in a two-hour training/tutorial on our new database system given by our coach/consultant Pete Sherman.
  • Celebrated and preached the liturgy for Holy Wednesday.
  • Lunch at home. Leftovers.
  • Processed a short stack of emails.
  • Made my pre-Easter confession (to a retired priest whom I recruited for special duty).
  • Read and made some notes on a substantial draft response from the Executive Council to a document on ecumenism from the "faith and order" section of the World Council of Churches. The draft has been circulated for comment by the Executive Council.
  • Took note of a message from another diocese regarding a disciplined (or, in this case, restored) member of the clergy. Bishops get a pretty steady supply of such notices.
  • Responded substantively via email to a pastoral issue raised by one of our clergy.
  • Consulted with the Archdeacon on an ongoing pastoral/administrative matter.
  • Read Evening Prayer in the cathedral about 15-30 minutes earlier than usual so I could get home and take a walk before dinner. #10,000steps
