My Life = Parish Life

I was told my blog updates should be more frequent and more personal – well, hopefully not too personal, I can’t imagine the public clamoring for the insights of yours truly, but not my will but thy (nameless person) will be done.  Here are 5 random/interesting occurrences over the last few weeks.

1 – My big news of the year!  On Thursday, August 13 at roughly 7pm, I got down on one knee in a soaked parking lot and asked Ms. Natalie Kazinetz to marry me.  After she picked her jaw up off the ground and asked a series of questions that included “Are you kidding me?” and “Are you serious?” she happily said yes.  We then enjoyed a lovely dinner.

2 – I made a stop at the 2009 National ANS Retreat in Waymart, PA.  Which happened to be Friday, August 14.  So for the few hours I was there, I was the object of many hugs and congratulations from some of the women I have crossed paths with over the years…and, of course, my mom, who might be the happiest person in this whole deal.

3 – I’ll tell you, facebook is a thing of beauty.  You want to feel like people care about your existence on earth?  See how many “happy birthday’s” you get on facebook.  Or, I guess, better yet, announce your engagement there.

4 – I am off in an hour or so to the Central Diocesan Clergy Retreat, located a few hundred yards away from Mount Airy Casino.  My favorite part is going to the Casino in between Mass and prayertime!  KIDDING!!!

5 – Attended the Convo meeting at Transfiguration Parish in Wallington, NJ.  It was a good one, very productive.  Thought we were off track for a bit there, but I think we’ll have a good one in September in Scranton and we’ll be ready to rock.

That is all.  If you look through my posts from last year, I was fairly consistent through the non-summer months.  I really do enjoy writing more substantial things than this sort of fluff, and I do enjoy publishing a sermon every once in a while.  I wish more people visited my blog…but I’m thinking they would frequent it more if I frequented it more.  Anyways, the hottest week of summer has decided to show up towards the end of August, so I look forward to a number of things going on.  In chronological order:

St. Stanislaus Flea Market, August 21-23, 9-5pm – Replete with flea market types of things and food

St.Stanislaus Block Party, August 28-29, 5-11pm – Tons of food, beer tent, big wheel, games, etc.

Branch #1 YMSofR Chicken BBQ, August 29, 12-4pm – Fresh BBQ chicken, fries, slaw, and more

Track and field Meet – September 5, marathon at 8am, Mass at 10am, events and food all day

YMSofR Golf Tournament – Sunday September 13

Polish Food Fest – by the Elementary School, Sunday September 20

Needless to say, the next month is busy.  Pray for me!
