USA Trip — #9

Monday in Kentucky

My main activity centered on lunch and dinner today. Before and after those meals, I was able to do a lot of work on the computer. Especially I need to prepare a homily for next weekend since I will get in to Phnom Penh late Friday afternoon and have to preach the next day.

At lunch time I met with a group of former seminarians from St. Thomas Seminary in Louisville. They were students a couple years after I finished there but I have known them, especially through David Browne, my brother-in-law who was in that class with them. We had a really enjoyable lunch with them and their wives.

For dinner I met with a super group of women, all working in sign language interpreting for the Louisville Catholic Deaf Community. We go way back, when I taught some of them in high school. L-R: Norma Lewis, Sally Newton, Peg Darcy, Donna Laswell, Nancy and Patrick Reynolds. A wonderful group!
