My Palm Sunday

One of the banal duties of the priesthood.

We have six Masses for Sunday here at St. Therese Church.
Saturday 5 PM
Sunday 7, 9, and 10:30 AM
Sunday 12 Noon
Sunday 5 PM

I had the Saturday 5 PM.

Other priests have the other Masses.

However, it is my turn to be the priest-on-call.

In addition to staying near the phone, here at St. Therese Church the priest-on-call goes over to the church after each Mass to retrieve the collection and lock it in the safe in the rectory.

[(into church) + (get collection) + (into rectory)] x 6 =

Could you not have land line phone calls diverted to your mobile phone?

People either call into the church office, or they walk into the church office.
