Happy Friday! I've been told it's officially fall but it's still summer weather up here in Massachusetts. Here's a look back at the week.
If you want to run a successful youth group at your parish like our friend Jay does (husband of Michelle), just make sure to plan the messiest, silliest activities you can think of...and they will want to go! This past month's high school youth group included a Color War and next month will be Pumpkin Launching. I was going to write how I love to see my kids participate in good, clean fun...and then I remembered the laundry pile after this meeting. Still worth it :)

My cemetery walks at lunch time are still going strong. I'm usually too engrossed in an audiobook to pay attention to much else, but a few headstones caught my eye the other day.
