Fr. Fox writes these 'day in the life' posts every once in a while, thought I would share my day yesterday:

Banzai run back to the central offices downtown.
11:00 arrival at St. X High School (10 miles north of downtown) for Mass wtih some of the students to preach on vocations.
12:00 departure, head to St. William's for a funeral Mass, 20 minute drive.
