      Hahaha, ok first off, best Easter eggs ever! We’ve got a Spencer!

      But down to business. Very excellent episdode and yes you three have a wealth of experience and knowledge. Also agree that you have much more you could share in this area. It’s helpful for ministers in a parish to know how to meet the needs that are preexistent. Parish spiritual reports are good showing how many baptisms a parish has; this helps reveal the nature of the ministry and type of people that are there.

      Answer to question of the week: My parish is a small rural-type parish in an urban setting, so I get the best of both worlds. My most favoritest thing about St. Michael parish in P.A. is the community feeling. Everyone knows everyone, they stick together, have only one Mass a Sunday and are almost as welcoming as heaven itself!

      God bless and thanks again!
