How much we priests need to get away for the managerial and spiritual development that this opportunity affords! It was quite a full week, with three presentations each day given by professionals from around the country; time for Mass and prayer together; and most importantly, the built-in fraternity that every priest needs in order to flourish. This year’s offerings included a combination of spirituality, education, psychology, finance, management, scripture, health, liturgical practice and music, lay ministry and legal issues. All in all, it was an excellent week. My expectations were fulfilled. However, speaking honestly, on one slow day, when those few topics weren’t so appealing, I called my sister, Kathy and asked her to meet me at our mother’s home to spend the day going through some of her things that need to be donated and discarded. Those of you who have lost parents know that we will have to dispose of the car and the house in good time. I am hoping to spend one day each week in Toms River with that necessary clean up. Anyway, I enjoyed spending time at the convention with my classmates and priest friends who live in other parts of the archdiocese whom I rarely see anymore. I was sure to give your regards to Fathers Backes, Higgins and Keane. They all agreed that I was the lucky one of the foursome, because I am the pastor of this beautiful parish. As great as it was, and how necessary the change of location and pace, I was so happy to be back to celebrate two weddings on Friday afternoon and the weekend Masses with all of you today. In my conversations with some of you, I learned that we have quite a few parishioners in military service. If you agree, I would like to include in this bulletin each week the names of your sons and daughters who are serving in the armed forces. We will call the listing the Blue Star Banner. This was created in 1917, and it hung in a family’s window to show pride in a loved one serving the country. It is another way for us to remember them in prayer. Please send us their rank, name and branch of service. We can give it a try. The Fathers and I want to thank you again for your generous preparation of meals for us. We have never eaten so well! I hope you have a nice week.
