It's raining...

More First Holy Communions today, followed by a tasty lunch provided by one of our parishioners, then two separate baptisms. Now it's time to get ready for this evening. We've invited the priests of the deanery over for a barbecue after the evening Mass. It's good to meet up with our local priests and spend time simply socialising with them. Too often we are ploughing through an inconsequential agenda at deanery meetings and there can be little time to relax and simply learn from each other informally. A number of parishes have tried to remedy this by hosting social events most years. The summer barbecue has become a speciality here at the Holy Ghost.
This afternoon, of course, I'm keeping an eye on the weather. It's been pretty awful so far and I'm beginning to wonder what we shall do if it rains. Perhaps we should go over to the parish room for a film. Anyone fancy "Going my way?" Personally I'm more inclined towards "The Usual Suspects" which my dad has just recommended (and lent) to me....
