Happy Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord!

Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.”

Remember folks only 9 months of shopping before Christmas! ;-)

New things for St. Matthew and for me

We had a nice town hall meeting at St. Matthew tonight. A report on religious ed, some q&a about the new translations of the Mass and it hopeful implementation in Advent of 2011 and...the fact that this will be my last year at St. Matthew. Yes it is true, this time no joke. The plan right now is that I will go back to school to get another masters degree this fall. It will be a ThM (Catholic Social Teaching concentration) from Boston College School of Theology and Ministry. It is something I have been praying about for quite some time and Archbishop Gregory has been very supportive. I will tell you that this is not a done deal, as anything can change, but I am hopeful nothing will stand in my way. One great piece of news is that the school has awarded me a fellowship which will cover 50% of my tuition. I am really looking forward to focusing on academics for a year...and a chance to do a bit more work for CRS. If things go as I think they will, I will be at St. Matthew until the beginning of July and then begin school at the end of August. So there you have it. If you have any questions just let me know. Peace to you all and have a Happy Lent. Padre Vic

Just one more hour and...

Give this video a watch. It is really heart warming. The video is of a dog who was one hour away from euthanasia. Enjoy. Remember to have your pets spayed or neutered.
