The Lord's Day (XIII Pentecost)
Out the door of the Hilton Garden on O'Fallon right at 7:45, aiming for an 8:15 arrival at St Bartholomew's, Granite City, ahead of an 8:45 Eucharist. A construction detour made me miss my target by about five minutes, but no harm done. Celebrated with the staunchly faithful regular congregation at St Bart's, observing their feast of title. Yummy egg and sausage casserole with buffalo wing sauce (the latter touch just for YFNB) served at coffee hour, with a very productive plenary conversation about some of the issues facing this small Eucharistic Community.
