I will be travelling to St. Meinrad Aarchabbey with friend and former student and seminarian for the diocese of Little Rock, Jason Sharbaugh, and our organist-choirmaster, Michael Odom and his wife Jennifer and baby, Sam. We will be there for the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I'm sure that the monks' schola will be in good form.
We will return on Thursday, and then turn right around and go to Fort Smith (stopping to get rooms at Subiaco) for the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher state section Mass and dinner. The Mass will be celebrated at Immaculate Conception Church, and dinner and meeting will follow at Taliano's Italian Restaurant. Because it will be too long to drive back to El Dorado, we will spend the night at Subiaco and make our way back south Saturday morning---and then it will be Sunday! Is there no rest for the wicked?
