Every other month the transition ministry people get together for a diocesan meeting. That means the priests serving parishes in transition and the consultants who help the search committees. Today was our meeting for this bi-monthly period. It meant four hours of driving for a four-hour meeting, but the good thing is that I got to be with colleagues and talk about things that matter. The parish I'm serving is in an isolated area and there are practically no colleagues to speak of or to, so these meetings are important to me for many reasons. I appreciate the good spirit of the people who come to our meetings and the generous information exchange that takes place.
