Yesterday, Sunday, the children at St. Madeleine made their Confirmation. This weekend was very busy for me since I am not only the Confirmation teacher, but the Director of Religious education as well. Saturday the Confirmandi had a short retreat and a rehearsal. Again this morning we had a dress rehearsal. I was a nervous wreck worried something would go wrong or that the Bishop would ask the Confirmandi a question they couldn’t answer. But all went well, the ceremony was beautiful, and the children were well-behaved. I guess I was worried for nothing.
One more big weekend coming up and then I’ll have a break until after Labor Day. Next Saturday is the retreat for the First Holy Communion students and on Sunday they make their First Holy Communion. I look forward to only working 8 hours a day in Real Estate. It will seem like a vacation for me.
