I'm Too Old For Halloween

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 Written by

 

I so fondly remember Halloween from my youth. As a young child, we would travel to the neighbours and show off our costumes and receive the customary treat. You see, I loved candy. I loved chocolate. I loved bags of chips and creamy toffee. I loved Rockets and Sweethearts and pretty much anything else that we generally would not have had on a regular basis. I dreamed of the days that I would be a "big boy" and allowed to go to the nearby town and get even more treats. How special it was when, on that Halloween night in grade 5, I got permission to stay at my good friend Kent's house and at exactly 4:45 pm we hit the road, pillow case in hand, and made our journey around the town. We traveled every street in town. We relished the thought of all our goodies. Even as our arms began to grow weary of the weight we still did our best to carry on.

I Love You, Mémère

Thursday, October 26, 2017 Written by

 

I remember when my Mémère died, I was pulled out of school in the middle of the day, went home, packed and went with my family straight to the small town where she lived with my Pépère and my Aunt and Uncle. It was the middle of the week, but it didn’t feel like the middle of the week, or even that I had anywhere to be other than there. On our way to the funeral home our first morning there, we walked past the elementary school in town. There were kids laughing and playing and running around. And I thought ‘What are they doing? Why are they at school? Shouldn’t they be at home?’ It took me a few minutes before I realised that, though my world had stopped turning, their world kept on going and that they had no idea what my family and I were going through. It was like I was in a bubble, insulated from the realities of everyday life.

When there is a funeral in the Cathedral, I find, more often than not, that same bubble effect that I had experienced comes to dwell for a time in the Cathedral. The work day starts as it usually does, with phone calls and mail and the like. But, the moment the funeral home car pulls up and the family and friends of the deceased begin to arrive, there is a change in the atmosphere – the bubble begins to descend...

 

A Blog About "Nothin"...

Thursday, October 19, 2017 Written by

Just like in the TV show Seinfeld, when George and Jerry had to pitch to TV executives, this week's blog is about "nothin". I struggled for a couple of days and spent a few sleepless nights wondering what I was going to write about. The deadline drew nearer and nearer and I just couldn't wimp out. As a staff, when we started doing weekly blogs we were given tips on how to write a blog, the do's and the don'ts, write about things we know, make it interesting, not too long, etc.

At work, my day is filled with numbers, figures, accounts and spreadsheets, and by the end of some days, I find that I only interacted, for the most part, with the two computers I have in my office. As interesting as it is to me, as I enjoy my line of work... there is really nothing there to blog about...

The Cathedral of the Holy Family in Saskatoon, SK is seeking an outgoing and engaging full-time Coordinator of Youth Ministry to become part of our parish ministry team.
