As announced this weekend, my ministry will be split between two parishes.  Many decisions will be made over the coming weeks so please pray for the gift of wisdom for myself and for the parish leadership.  While completing my undergraduate degree in Agribusiness Economics I decided to minor in management; in the process of my studies, I learned about the Peter Principle.  The Peter Principle states, “in hierarchies every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence."  I look forward to the opportunities this assignment brings but I also recognize my limitations.  Hopefully, this additional assignment will not entail me rising beyond my level of competence.  There will be a learning curve for both myself and St. Boniface Parish.  Some might foresee problems associated with this transition but I see this as an opportunity for our parish.  There is a saying; “united we can do so much more” and I believe this is true.  On another note, I will be leaving for my annual retreat after masses next weekend (June 26).  This year I am attending a preached retreat at the National Shrine of St. Therese in Darien, IL and the theme is: “Memories: Remembering and Being Re-membered.”  Please know that you will be remembered while I am on retreat.
