Good Sunday - Mass today was grand - the celebration of 100 years of worship at that location and the dedication of a new, and lovely, altar table made by a local artist and church member. The bishop was there with his hat and crook and there was a striking parade of priests who had once served at that church, and glorious music. After church the kids and I enjoyed a craft afternoon with our friend Marie - something I've been wanting to do for a long time and finally managed to manage. Marie has been painting as a hobby for fifteen years now and has so much knowledge of paints and brushes and techniques, its really a delight to learn from her and watch her teach the kids. Each participated at his/her level and we all ended up with cool painted rock projects in the end. I'm tired tonight - such a busy weekend and so much logistics and time out in the world - but its good. Life is good.
