Rev. James Meade was our Forty Hours speaker at the parish this year. He gave three absolutely wonderful talks to the congregation. I was totally impressed!
It was so good to see our MCs in attendance as well. They always help to keep things running smoothly. Several Knights and Ladies of the Holy Sepulchre and several priests from the diocese were present, too, as well as a few of our parish deacons. They add a lot of dignity to the occasion.
We began this evening — the Knights, Ladies, priests and deacons — with a meal. Kathleen Pagorek made us her special “chicken doo dahs”. Yum. Yum. Yum. They are always so good. And I’ve got a few sitting in my freezer for future meals as well.
So, now the countdown begins to next year’s Forty Hours. However, first, perhaps, let’s worry about getting through Advent. 🙂
