I have a list of items I want to post about, and it gets overwhelming when I look at it. I have so many things I want to say here, but..., well, if you visit from time to time you'll have noticed that I'm not a regular blogger.
The most important item to write about this month is my 5 days at the Franciscan friary in Port Jefferson, New York. My husband has an appointed position on Chapter, as vocations coordinator (I think that's the correct title). And I was elected this year as a Chapter member. So the five days were filled with meetings with other Chapter members and visitors, and with prayers with the friars.
I've taken on a couple of jobs: I'm on an ad hoc committee on Ministry to Young Adults, with looking at the Franciscan Earth Corp group. I'm thinking about how to create retreats and pilgrimages that would appeal to people between the ages of 18--35. My other job is to minister to the isolated tertiaries in the Province of the Americas, while I pay special attention to Canadian tertiaries (many of whom are among the isolated).
