Hi everyone - Phew! It's been a busy week so we thought it may be easiest to share this update from Bp. Tim: "Thursday through Saturday, the ICCC clergy had a wonderful retreat at the Sisters of St. Joseph Carondelet Hospitality Center near Albany. I ordained Dave Wood as a subdeacon. He gave us commemorative mugs with a picture of a subdeacon donning a maniple with the legend "Tie one one". This evening, we had a wonderful service and dinner afterward. One parishioner had been abroad, in Spain and Jordan, and brought back souvenirs for parishioners from the Holy Land. Another parishioner brought Padre Pio devotional booklets for everyone. And another brought in leftover Halloween candy. And another brought socks for our upcoming socks for the homeless project. All in all, a great few days!"
