After completing all of the things required for the Holy Week celebrations, I am now working on preparations for First Communion and the Sacrament of Confirmation which are back-to-back on May 4, and May 5. I am scheduled to preach on two weekends yet before I leave South Carolina for Iowa. The first of these is on May 11, at the Saturday 5:30 P.M. Mass. The second is on June 1, at the Saturday 5:30 P.M. Mass and then again at the 7:30 A.M. Mass on June 2. I also have a couple of speaking engagements remaining on the calendar. I will be serving as the keynote speaker for the Beaufort Deanery Catechist Appreciation Celebration on May 18, in Ridgeland, South Carolina. Then on May 19, I will be addressing the Knights of Columbus at a breakfast at Port Royal Country Club here on Hilton Head Island.
In the midst of all of this I will continue making preparations to move and transition into my new role in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Based upon what my calendar looks like right now, there is no danger of getting bored any time in the near future. Have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.
