Home again!

It took all day, but I'm back in Chicago now, and the weather is almost worthy of Texas! (Let's hear it for Indian Summer!)
In Texas, I was doing the social-networking-as-ministry thing for the priests of the archdiocese of San Antonio. It was kind of poignant, because just we had been in San Antonio for over 50 years, but left not quite two years ago. We just couldn't keep our book center going, between the changes in the world of publishing (and that was before the Kindle!) and the unending construction that cut all access to our little building on the Plaza by the Cathedral. So many of the priests asked about the sisters they remembered from the book center and from parish book fairs. (Sr. Lupe, Sr. Beatriz, Sr. Kathleen, Sr. Susan and Sr. Thecla, you all got special call-outs!)
Sr Helena and I now have a week before we go to Boston together to offer an in-service for the catechists of that archdiocese--and I'll stay on in Boston through Thanksgiving, learning the music for our Christmas concert series which begins the week after that. (Two new parishes!) Busy times ahead.

If you are in the New York-New Jersey-Philadelphia-Ohio-Boston area, I hope you can make it to one! (That's me in the middle, bidding you welcome!)

Wow! The music was fantastic! I wish I lived closer so we could come and see one of the concerts.
