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.


About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.
