VANCOUVER, BC, CAN – Sure they already promoted Youth Day, but it must have been hard to resist offering a parody of the Rebecca Black’s viral sensation… and so they produced a last minute promo.
PITTSBURGH, PA — No one knows for sure where or when the first Lenten fish fry took place, but the social and financial significance of the tradition is one that most people recognize.
|News from ‘Round Here:
Palm Sunday involved drying out from the pilgrimage with some unpacking in the office. The evening brought the opportunity to sit in on the clergy council for the Msgr. O’Dwyer Youth Retreat house – dinner in the Cathedral Rectory dining room with “the guys-” pretty cool.
Monday was still in unpack/ write thank you notes mode. I had the first of two days’ worth of meetings on the elementary school curriculum. The evening saw me playing a small role in the Chrism Mass and I was, needless to say, thrilled to participate.
Tuesday, I was in early for a Relevant Radio interview, participated in a meeting related to the Partnership for Adolescent Catecheses, and another on curriculum and then went home to crash. Wednesday was supposed to be a day off, but I went in only for the purposes of setting up and watching an office viewing of Of Gods and Men. Then, off for a tune-up on the car.
Thursday and Friday were real quiet… running errands including updating my passport. A third intern interview occurred over the break as well.
Saturday was a day of simple silence… and no car use. My favorite overall!
