This morning I received a phone call from a man needed me to look into a particular record at the parish on his behalf, which I'll be happy to do later this morning.
The conversation ended somewhat awkwardly. He lives in the boundaries of both of my two parishes and asked how long I had been here. "Oh, seven months," I replied (it hasn't quite been seven months yet, but it's close enough). His response: "Oh."
With that I assured him I'd call him regarding what I find in the record he needs. Maybe when I do so I should invite him back to the sacraments.
