We begin the second semester of formation classes this Saturday. I am really looking forward to seeing my brothers in formation as well as my teachers. This semester we have:
Patristics (Church Fathers)
The only change from last semester is our Liturgy class.
I will also be taking a Pastoral Care Class at St Josephs Hospital in Sandy Springs, Georgia which will meet every week for 10 weeks. This class is to prepare us for visits to the sick and dying. That class will really be where the "rubber meets the road".
That, on top of a trip to Rome to see the ordination of a friend to the transitional diaconate, will make this a very busy autumn.
