Hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter. I did. Sun out. Family over for Easter turkey. It was a nice quiet day here.
Went to the Easter Vigil mass last night at St. William with Mom and Sis. It was Father Jason's first leading of the Easter Triduum, and from what I saw last evening he did a great job. During the 2-1/4 hour service he blessed fire, water, oil, the Easter Candle, the congregation, altar and catechumens, bread and wine. He baptized four people, distributed first communion to several others and welcomed still more into adulthood in the church through confirmation. Michael played the pipe organ and piano to a full house and the choir sounded great. It was a good experience made even better by seeing so many familiar faces. One familiar face was missing though; Father Leonard isn't feeling well, wasn't there. Prayers for Father.
Note: The confirmation I mentioned above is not the same service my small group and the 80 or so other Waukesha Catholic kids have been preparing for. They will have their own special mass one week from today with Archbishop Timothy Dolan presiding. To say I'm looking forward to it is an understatement.
