Today was the first Sunday back and it was great. There is something wonderful about getting back to your own community on Sunday morning. Great to see everyone again, great to hear our familiar and great music, great to reconnect, great to be with the people of God at St. Mark’s by-the-Lake.

Today we had the blessing of the backpacks – over 70 in all so far and from what I understand, more to come- many tanks to all who brought our bags. After church we joined our friends at St. Gregory the Great church for their annual picnic. It is always a wonderful time – good burgers and dogs as well as hot corn and fries, pony rides, hay rides, you name it they hand it. Thanks again to the K of C for the kind invitation!

It was a great day – look for many more of them.
