A Day in the Life

The life of the parish priest is never dull.

In one 24-hour period last week, I joined in the conferring of the Eagle Scout rank to a parishioner, had coffee with the editor of a national church magazine, officiated at the funeral of a retired police officer from the 17th Precinct (which I serve as clergy liaison), and visited a rousing Family Friday party. These activities were in addition to the usual weekday service, meetings, etc.

No wonder that we clergy are so grateful for our vocations–we can’t believe we get paid for what we do! —J. Douglas Ousley
