I am almost completely packed and ready to go. I even printed off the express tickets for the cruise.
Tomorrow I will go to St. John's in Somerville to be with one of the communities, which sponsored me for my ordination. I was at St. John's for 2 1/2 years before coming to Holy Spirit. I will see Deacon Joanna George who was with us at Holy Spirit during her internship year. We still see each very often.
Thank you Father Philip for the wonderful "sending of" service. I feel extremely blessed to be your Deacon; more than you can ever imagine. I felt your love and I am humbled by it.
