AN EXCELLENT WEEKEND
Sunday we went to Mass, which is always great! Then KenEllie stopped by for a short visit. At 4 we were at the Omni Royal Orleans hotel for a very nice dinner with the Archdiocese of New Orleans diaconate community (deacons, wives, candidates and wives, and aspirants and wives) to meet and welcome our new archbishop, Greg Aymond. He is from New Orleans, but spent the past nine years as Bishop of Austin, Tx. Welcome home, Archbishop Aymond!! It was really great to see so many of my brother deacons and their wives!
Today, being Columbus Day, is a fed holiday, so Linda and I are off. Woo-hoo!! Looking forward to a quiet day, with an occasional break from the rain. Happy Columbus Day to all, and sorry, if you have to work today!!
