Minister Itinerans, ubi es?

"Where have you been?!" I can hear all of you asking.  Yes, all of you dear faithful readers, otherwise known as search engine crawler bots (and a certain sacristan). Well, the short answer to that is an injury car accident, as well as a heavy course load at university.  Those can tend to keep someone otherwise occupied and distract from the important things of life, such as blogging!

Anyway, here's a quick update of what I have been up to, to be filled in later with actual backdated posts containing details. (Yes, I have kept notes!)  Since August, I have . . .

  • Officially switched my parish to St. Francis de Sales Oratory.
  • Been in a car accident, sustaining neck, back and wrist injuries which kept me from easily writing, serving or playing the organ.
  • Continued to (try to) serve and play the organ anyway.
  • Arranged a Missa Solemnis at the Shrine of St. Ferdinand, including training of all major and minor ministers other than the celebrant.
  • Arranged a Missa Cantata at the Shrine of St. Joseph.
  • Helped arrange a Missa Solemnis for Augustinian Canons, according to their monastic usages of the 1962 Missal.
  • Added five new churches to my serving list, bringing the total to 55.
  • Done many other liturgical things which may end up in a future post.

To my faithful sacristan reader, and to all of the Google crawlers, thank you for your devotion during these past months!

Datum S. Ludovici, die XXVII mensis Ianuarii, Dominica III Post Epiphaniam, anno MMXIV.
