News from ‘Round Here:

Monday was the one good desk day of the week and it still had two meetings… one with a new volunteer for the office which might prove to be a very fruitful relationship. Tuesday was the Center for Ministry Development’s training day on Managing Volunteers and a meeting with some hs campus ministers to plan an evangelization conference. 

Wednesday was a parish visit accompanying Bishop Rozanski and back to the office to work on the e-newsletter and minutes from the campus ministers’ meeting.

Thursday, the e-newsletter went out and then I happily sat in for both live broadcasts of ReBuild My Church (which is such a dream come true that it was this week’s AWE (Amazing Weekly Experience) event.

Friday, I worked from home, catching up on blogging and other writing projects, chill’ in pajama pants, and getting a haircut. A mexican dinner out made for a good day.

Saturday involved a little shopping and ended with stories of war-torn Croatia and backgammon lessons.

Sunday found me over with the Archdiocesan Youth Advisory Council acknowledging their “game changing: leadership this year.
