My Little Pity Party

Thursday, May 3, 2018 Written by

So, about a month ago, I chipped one of my teeth. After a short period of mild panic, I called the dentist and got an appointment for him to check it out. Sure enough, I would need a couple more appointments to get the problem (and a few other minor issues) fixed. I guess that’s what I get for not visiting for a few years.

Well, after a bit of waiting, the time had finally come – my week of appointments. This morning, I got myself to the dentist office for Part 2 of the appointment series – finishing the fixing of the tooth. After a freezing job that left one side of my face feeling nothing, and yet ridiculous at the same time, and an hour and a bit of holding my mouth open, it was all done. I stood up from the chair and went to go talk to the dental office receptionist. That’s when my personal pity party began...

Phase 7

After my One Dark Night, my attitude to life changed and I became more focused on prayer to God for peace and guidance. I phoned my good friend Lorne to give him the good news. His Mom said Lorne had moved to Edmonton to attend a 2 year Certificate Music Program to train as a vocalist (singer). With no hesitation, I asked for Lorne’s phone number in Edmonton. After speaking with Lorne, I drove to Edmonton to get more information and get a tour of the Grant MacEwan Performing Arts College. I picked up an application form and planned to attend the Program...

Of Lives and Fishes

Friday, April 20, 2018 Written by

It’s been a few years now since my Mom passed away. She was quite excited with my role in the design and construction of the Cathedral as volunteer Chair of the Building Committee. Sadly, she never got to see the finished building. I actually interviewed for my position here as Facilities Manager a few days after her funeral.

She died in 2011 at the age of 89, some 6 years after Dad, who had lived to 92. Like many other young women of that depression/wartime generation, she trained as a school teacher after leaving home. Through her position in a one-room country schoolhouse, she met and subsequently married my father. They raised 8 kids while farming 3 quarter-sections of land - practically a hobby farm by today's standards...

This Easter season has been full of twists and turns. I went to the Easter Triduum at the Cathedral, and it was absolutely beautiful. The Easter vigil will be a highlight of the year, with breathtaking music and an awesome experience of our faith community. It was an absolute joy to see the congregation huddle around the baptismal fount to welcome twenty-six new members into the church.

But this past week has also been spent meditating on the mystery of God’s ways. Amongst the joy of the Easter season, the celebrations of God’s mercy for us, we mourn and lament the tragedy of the Humboldt Bronco hockey team. We light the Easter candle and finally sing Alleluia, while simultaneously offering prayers of sorrow and devastation...
