Hey everybody! Well, how do you like the new look of the 'blog? Our good friend Mr. Kip Struthers of the OCP told us that our 'blog was noncompliant with the style standards maintained by the OCP, so we had to change it to the way they think it should look. I kind of liked the old look, but since we're getting such a big discount on our bulletins and missals, we really have to go with the whole program.
On a related note, we've had to fire Todd Turk. While he was a super Liturgical Music Minister, he wasn't able to complete the OCP's rigorous training, and thus wasn't certified. Since under the terms of our contract with the OCP we have to have a certified music minister, we've replaced Todd with a Kareoke machine that OCP sold us at a very reasonable price. This is really a load off of our weekly liturgical planning meetings, since now we can use the preprogrammed liturgical plans that OCP provides us.
Also, I really should let you know that Kip will be concelebrating the masses with me so that he can get a feel for our liturgical rhythms. So don't mind him! He's a validly certified deacon with the OCP and can perform all the sacraments except foot-washing.
More later - I've got to run as I have a teleconference with Oregon and they get really mad if I'm late.
