The Lord's Day (II Pentecost)

Up and out of the Hampton Inn in Alton in time to preside and preach at the regular 0815 liturgy at Trinity Chapel. Spent some time with the folks at coffee hour, then headed down the hill to St Paul's and their 1015 Mass, where we baptized a lovely 8-year old named Daytona, confirmed two youth, received three adults, blessed two young boys on the day of their first Holy Communion, and offered prays for a youth about the depart as part of the team going on a medical mission in Nigeria. After a bit of down time at the fast-food seafood restaurant, it was back to St Paul's for their monthly PAWS (Pets Are Welcome Service). There were about 15 dogs and 25 humans in attendance. Here I am with 14-month old Lily. Growing girl. Home around 4:30. The main business of the evening was to pack for four nights on Mackinac Island, MI with the Class 0f 2011 bishops and spouses. It's our annual continuing education gathering, but we work some fun in as well. Leaving early tomorrow morning.
