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!
Peace be with you!

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
