It’s been a while since I posted. Mea culpa. My last post marked then end of my third year of theological studies in Rome and the finishing of my S.T.B.
After I was done with my last exam I immediately flew to Boston to attend an academic conference, which lasted all week. At the end of the week I was able to get together with my cousin who lives in Boston and watch one of Ecuador’s world cup matches.
Following Boston I made a quick pit stop of sorts in New Jersey before making my way to Missouri for the summer.
I spent most of the summer working in two parishes in Missouri. Both parishes are located on the Lake of the Ozarks which is a beautiful lake and vacation area in Missouri. I lived in one parish, St. Patrick’s on the North side of the lake. There I participated in as many of the parish actives as possible. I also helped out on the southern side of the Lake in Camdenton. There my work was more specialized as I only engaged in Hispanic Ministry.
There are lots of crazy stories and adventures, hopefully when I get time I will share some of the specifics. I should have found time to post more stories as they actually took place.
I can say for now that my favorite part of the summer has been being able to get together with so many old friends. It has been wonderful catching up with so many different people from different parts of my life.
