It's been a while

Thursday, June 21, 2007

Hi everyone.

I know it's been a while since I've posted on here so I'm going to give a quick update.

I graduated from University in 2006 with my degree in Philosophy. Since then, I have been working as Office Manager at St Andrew's Cathedral here in Victoria, BC, Canada.

I have been deeply involved in the parish. I am part of a non-profit society that does conferences and retreats for the Diocese. In September we brought in George Weigel and next September we are bringing in Cardinal Ouellet.

I am also the organizer of the young adults planning on going to the Eucharistic Congress in 2008 in Quebec City.

On top of that I'm a Catechist in RCIA, a teacher for our College and Career group, on the Pastoral Council and am doing work now with the Finance Committee. I'm also helping out in the Liturgy on the weekends as either an Altar Server, Extra-Ordinary Minister of Holy Communion, or Lector.

Needless to say, I'm doing a lot! It has been a rollercoaster year vocationally and it has been tough to stay on the path of discernment. I am going to be working for at least another year to help pay off those nasty student loans though. A religious sister in our Diocese recently approached me asking me if I would be willing to accept help to help pay them off. It is things like that, that though I go through the ups and downs of discernment, seem to say that God is calling me to priesthood.

I am leaving on Thursday for Poland. I am going t Krakow for 3 weeks for the Tertio Millennio Seminar on the Free Society that is run by George Weigel and Fr. Richard John Neuhaus.

I would very much appreciate prayers in discernment. I am going to be talking with my spiritual director this weekend (he's also my boss) once he returns from France. I am thinking I need to take that leap of faith and just give the Seminary a shot and trust in God to guide me. So I am going to suggest to him that I now begin officially applying for the seminary this coming year. Please keep me in your prayers.

Thanks

Harrison
