One more week

This coming Friday will be my last day in the parish. It seems like it was just yesterday that I had moved in. Over the past two months I have spent time at the local hospital and nursing homes, read a few books (in the middle of a couple right now), helped run a summer youth program called 'Totus Tuus', met several great families, painted lines for the parking lot, and the list goes on. One of the most important things that I have learned this summer is to be ready for what may come during the day. For me to be ready, I ought to be praying with a pastor's heart. I have also learned to be present to those who are in most need and to reflect the love of God to them. The priest that I have been living with has been a good model for me and has become a good friend. As my time in Milbank draws to a close I look forward to my next parish assignment and also to a new academic year. There are more things to learn as the years go by, but this has been a good start to a life-long learning process.
