Lots of pots on the fire this coming week, starting today with a book display for a parish day of prayer. I'll be going with Sr. Laura, our newest Chicago Pauline. Sr. Laura was transferred from Boston and arrived Monday night. She came with me to the St. Paul talk I gave on Wednesday, too. (Eventually, I'll introduce her to you in a more formal fashion!) Monday we have a treat: a friend of the community invited us to a Cole Porter evening. Not quite sure what kind of evening, but it's music! Then Thursday, Sr. Laura and I will be going together to the "Here I Am Conference" in St. Charles, IL: 3,000 teens and 50 religious orders, with Tony Melendez and others leading the way in prayer and song. That ends at a noon Mass on Sunday, when Sr. Laura and I will spin by the house to pick up Sr. Thecla and go to an event at the Cardinal's house.
I think there's something else going on...hopefully I will remember it on time!
