Well, today was my first Sunday at the new parish. I concelebrated the early mass (English), and then presided the midmorning (French) and middday (English) masses. It was a bit overwhelming, seeing all the new faces and learning all the new (and always slightly different) ways of doing things. But I am always happy to be able to refocus on the Eucharist — I always feel at home there. It’s a good way to start off a new ministry. Special thanks to Fr. Roger, the pastor, for his warm words of welcome, as well as for taking me out to supper in honour of my arrival.
For those trying to reach me at the new place, BTW, I’ve updated my Contact Me page with my new address, telephone number, and driving directions.
