Re: Getting impatient
Kitty: Almost all of our rural parishes around here offer a Saturday
evening Mass and at least one Sunday morning mass. Sunday a.m. is still
the preferred time for many parishioners but the Saturday mass has it's
regulars who rarely attend Sunday a.m. Many families with children find
it easier to get to church on Saturday afternoon than dragging kids out
of bed Sunday morning. Also for the farmers, they don't have to
interrupt early morning chores to get there. And with more and more
parishes clustering or sharing the services of one priest, it is
becoming commonplace for one town to host a Saturday evening mass, the
next town over to do an early Sunday a.m. mass, and another town to do a
late Sunday a.m. mass, all presided over by the same celebrant. With the
shortage of active priests in the US, we are seeing something of a
return to the days of itinerant ministers who come to celebrate the Mass
and leave the actual day to day running of the parishes in the hands of
administrators, which is what all the classwork I am doing is preparing for...work as a Parish Life Coordinator (PLA).

Felt so darned good to be down on my hands and knees, digging<br>> in
the soil! And not to have to think about anything except what I was<br>>
doing right at that moment...it was blissful! We are all
doing okay<br>> here...not great, but okay and sometimes that is enough!
The winter is<br>> always kind of hard on us as a family since we live
in a very small<br>> house and the enforced confinement of winter has us
bickering alot by<br>> the end of it all, but now that we can all start
getting some outdoors<br>> time, things will get better...thanks for
asking...it means alot!<br>><br>><br>> So...got an actual gardening
question...how long do you think I should<br>> let all the dirt settle
that we had to dump into the collapsed cistern<br>> last year before it
is safe to assume it won't settle anymore? Couple of<br>> years? And in
the meantime, what do I do with that pile of dirt to<br>> disguise it a
bit?? Obviously we are going to have to relocate the water<br>> feature
that was there...and I've got to get in back there to rescue the<br>>
lovely iris, lady's mantle, huechera, and grasses that are
there...any<br>> thoughts on the best way to divide zebra grass? The
masses are<br>> tough and last year when I tried to divide them using a
spade, I didn't<br>> have much luck at all...okay read that as none!
