My schedule resumes a little more normalcy in the weeks ahead. That is a welcome shift. My list of speaking engagements for 2017 continues to grow. These are wonderful opportunities to share faith with people all across the diocese. You can see a list of the major upcoming events by clicking on the "Speaking Engagements" tab at the top of this page.
It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost upon us. The autumn season has been very pleasant and that has been much appreciated by this individual. The winter always seems to be a test in endurance. A later start to the cold and snow is just fine with me.
The College of Consultors is meeting today to select an administrator for the diocese while we await the appointment of a new bishop. I pray for their gathering and their discernment in this decision-making process. We pray also that the process of appointing us a new bishop is prayerful, reflective, and expedient.
