News from ‘Round Here:
Monday was just a good desk day, but Tuesday was one-on-one staff supervision. All went well, worked uo drafts of newsletters, and then headed out to Msgr. O’Dwyer Youth Retreat House for a mass and board dinner/ meeting.
Wednesday, I went into the office briefly to finalize the parent newsletter and ship it out. I had two meetings on the road with two newbie parish youth ministers, did some homework /reading in between, and attended a recognition meal at the far-western end of the diocese… such a good and full day of ministry, this week’s Amazing Weekly Experience (A.W.E.) event. Thursday, we wrapped up and shipped out the office e-newsletter with some peppy looking flyers attached. Margaret and I took out a first draft for September’s Youth Contact meetings< I sat with IT to get briefed on the dynamics of GoToMeeting, and started the process of booking a musician for our local World Youth Day ‘13 that, if we get, will certainly add a Wow to it. I was home by 5 and crashed.
Friday, as you might imagine, was a scheduled shorter day. One meeting. some deskwork, and I was outta there. I helped my daughter with some house/yard-work and then had a delightful afternoon and evening with a friend.
Saturday, I popped-in (if you can do that after a 90 minute commute) to the AYAC Hershey Park trip, stopped in the office for some file shredding, and then went off to a Hispanic young adult celebration. Sunday was a complete lounging around sort of day and that was good… It was needed.
