The Seminary this Year!

Time Off...

As you can tell I took some time off from this old blog. After an incredibly busy summer, and a quick start to the school year I have had little time to breathe. As worked pilled up I took a little time away from writing here to my great disappointment. Catching up to speed: This Summer: I was assigned to Berlin, NH in the great North Woods. I loved my time in the North Country and the people were fantastic. I was truly blessed to meet so many incredible people and to learn from them. One of the greatest joys of the Summer was being able to celebrate the Feast of St. Anne with the entire diocese at St. Anne Church in Berlin. All summer long one of my main tasks was to help organize a diocesan pilgrimage to Berlin at the end of July. This task was challenging for several reasons: 1. It had never been done before 2. We had no budget to work with 3. Berlin is North, way North in NH (almost 3 hours from Manchester) 4. We did not have much time and wanted to get it right 5. Our diocese has not done large scale pilgrimages in the past 6. The pilgrimage was to occur on a Thursday during the middle of the day 7. Berlin is a small town, accommodating large numbers of people is a challenge However, with a lot of help from the big guy upstairs, and the incredible people of the community we were able to pull it off in a grand fashion. When all was done and thru we had over 1,300 people descend on Berlin over two days. Together we prayed, we laughed and we celebrate the Feast of St. Anne. Below are a few pictures from the activities. (cancel that blogspot won't allow me to upload). I will have to work on this and get back)
