It has been a long time since I have had a chunk of time to myself. The last vacation I took was the beginning of 2020. I got five days away this past summer to go on a private retreat. I have not even had a chance to take my days off. In short, I’m going stir crazy.
So, today, after the 6:30 and 8:00 a.m. Masses, I began my vacation. I will be “gone” for almost two weeks (with the exception of taking Masses this coming weekend). I will not be going to the office and anything that comes in will be handled by Fr. Declan.
