Well, I have not been in the parish for a week officially. Lots has been done but moutains remain. The actual family totals of the three parishes is officially less than I was told.
Total families =254 between the three.
You might think that means less work. No way. There is a huge amount. Reflecting on Augustines sermons to Pastors keeps my hand to the plowshare as well.
It is much easier to pray here. My Rectory (which also doubles as an office) is attached to the church via an underground tunnel so the Blessed Sacrament is available 24 hours a day. Speaking of which I need to get my daytime prayer done so enough for now.
