Being in seminary, one gets use to many transitions. I have now transitioned from my Pastoral Internship in May to my Summer Assignment. I am going to remain in the same parish, Blessed Sacrament, for the summer, but my role and responsibilities are changing a little. During my internship, I had formal paperwork to fill out for the seminary and had to make several trips for evaluations and retreat. But not anymore… not more paperwork; my traveling for vacation and retreat come next semester. My work load has not changed much from my internship during my summer assignment, yet I am still learning my role as minister to the people during this time in the summer. The life in the parish is slowing down a little as the summer advances and activities are not as heavy as before. More time for reflection and prayer; still listening to the Lord on my vocation journey. It has been a good experience here at Blessed Sacrament this last year (2013-2014), but another transition is coming in two months. But that is another story for a different blog.
St. Charles Borromeo, pray for me.
