The past few weeks have been very busy. I helped out with the Companion Camp Reunion, then departed for Wichita and Oklahoma City to visit a monastic vocation guest and attend the priesthood ordination as the seminary representative for alumnus John Paul Lewis. The monks have 14 days of vacation each year, so I spent a week with my parents and had an enjoyable and relaxing time. Today I will head to Pennsylvania to attend the wedding of a friend. I did my theology studies in Latrobe, PA and was assigned to Sts. John and Paul parish in Wexford, PA. I made many friends during my year as a deacon as I was formed in such a positive way by that parish. It is always a great experience to go back and visit them. I will celebrate two or three Masses there this weekend.
Here are some of the photos from the past week or so. Br. Etienne has been helping share the photo taking while I have been away. Some of the photos below are mine and some are his. The weather has been warm, but we have received some generous rain lately to keep everything green. Peace and blessings!
