48 HOURS AND SOMETHING
Today I have my last funeral as pastor of St. Joseph Church. God rest her soul. It is at 11:00 AM.
I will visit our former pastor who at 87 suffers from dementia and has been in an assisted living facility for the past four years or so. Msgr. John Cuddy was pastor here from 1974 to 2004 when I came and remained assisting with Masses and other ministries until he was unable to do so in recent years.
This evening I have two wedding rehearsals at 5 and 6 PM.
Tomorrow, Saturday, I have the 8:00 AM Mass.
At 10:00 AM I have a baptism in the Extraordinary Form.
At 1:30 PM I have a wedding.
At 3PM I will hear confessions.
At 6:30 PM I have a wedding.
On Sunday I have the 7:45 AM Mass.
I have the 9:30 AM Mass.
Following the 9:30 AM Mass there is a farewell reception for me in the social hall.
By 11:30 AM or so I will be given my parish gift. I will offer my final blessing and will get into my automobile and depart for a week of vacation and settling into my new rectory in Richmond Hill.
On Wednesday, June 22nd I become the new pastor of Saint Anne Church in Richmond Hill.
