I am back!

In case you are unsure I am back from my month long hiatus from my summer assignment, praise God!  After a week with my family which was great - minus the fall - I went to the Assembly for the two East Coast Provinces of the Conventual Franciscans.  It was a grace to be a part of it and a blast to be with the friars.  From there I went to Indonesia for two weeks with my sister, her husband, and his family.  That too was a great trip, my first time in Asia, I could write a book about it; but for your sake I won't.  I will post some pictures from the trip and some of my adventures in the next couple of days.  I am now glad to be back to a normal routine in the Friary and the Parish in Brooklyn

Today I helped out with everyday things at the parish.  In the morning and afternoon I helped with some office organizing. In the evening I was honored to assist at a wake of one our parishioners and to be with the youth group.  And lastly we had a visit of two hamsters, cute as buttons, but they have sharp teeth.  That is what Manny one of the evening assistants at the Parish says.  I simply gave then water to drink and refrained from touching them.  Well until next time...Peace and All Good!
