The weekend was a blessed one. I preached all three Masses, and was the principal celebrant at two of them. The parish threw a reception for me after each one, and it was a great opportunity to begin getting to know all of these new faces.
Next came July 4th, which is also my birthday. I celebrated Mass in the morning (saying Mass on your birthday is pretty cool), and I was glad that daily Mass was in the church and not in the chapel, because there is no better place to celebrate Mass on July 4th in the city of Mobile than St. Pius X.
