Going to St. Louis!

I am so blessed to be serving such a loving, faithful, and generous flock.  I was recently presented with the following card, which included a check inside that will more than cover the cost for me to travel to St. Louis in a couple of weeks and attend the Installation of President-elect Matt Harrison and other officers.  I am so looking forward to that trip.  I'm downright geeked about it.  Can't wait!  I'm hoping to pay a visit to the "bunker" of "Issues, Etc." during the trip, and I will definitely be attending Divine Service at St. Paul's in Hamel, where Pr. Weedon serves, on the Sunday after the Installation (attending, Pr. Weedon, NOT serving! :).  And, as a bonus, I'm planning on paying a visit to my good friend and brother-of-another-mother, Pr. Al Majewski, and his family, on the way back home.  It promises to be a most glorious little getaway, and I am ever so thankful to the members of the parish I serve for making this possible.  Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

Nice! I'd offer to fill in, but that's our Sunday school kickoff 'rally day' - enjoy the trip and installation! What a treat!

Yeah, it's our Rally Day, too. I hate to miss it, but it would be just plain rude of me not to take the trip to St. Louis at this point, and I wouldn't want to be rude, you know. :)

We thought about going to St. Louis, but probably won't because of other obligations. Interesting that you're going to do the exact same three things that I'd be doing -the installation, a trip to LPR, and Pr. Weedon's church. I haven't made it to Hamel yet, but would like to go. I call it the haj.

Wait, where's LPR? In Saint Louis? For some reason I thought they broadcasted from out here in California somewhere.
