Katie Smoak who received the first ever Msgr. John Cuddy Award (for religion and spirituality) chatting after her Mt. de Sales Academy High School Graduation exercises with yours truly over a funny incident as she received her award from Msgr. Cuddy. Her sister, Laura, an 8th grade graduate from the same school looks on:

What a busy two weeks:

May 15, special First Communion Mass
May 17, Catholic High School Baccalaureate Mass with Bishop
May 18, Confirmation Mass with Bishop
May 19, our 6th elementary school graduation Mass
May 20, our pre-K graduation ceremonies
May 22, non-sectarian private high school Baccalaureate service at our Church with me presiding at 3:00 PM
May 23, 8th grade graduation at our private Catholic school
May 24, the end of the school year Mass and awards for our elementary school
May 26, our annual calendar meeting that I absolutely hate, but we absolutely need, planning through December of 2012

I'm taking Memorial Day off and a few days after that too! Vacation in July and then guess what? The first day of our elementary school is Tuesday, August 9th!!!!!

Fr., Rejoice in this year's calendar meeting: The energy and infectious hope a graduation ceremony gives will make planning past the October 21, 2011 End of the World (updated) a joy.
