Tuesday–20 March

Today was scheduled for a full day of meetings with Johanna Karinen from the Finnish Association of the Deaf but we got a bit ahead of schedule and then this afternoon Charlie Dittmeier had to leave early to attend a Catholic service leading up to Holy Week.

In the week before Holy Week, the Phnom Penh diocese has a meeting and reflection for all the priests of Cambodia.
Afterwards there is what is called the chrism mass, where the three bishops of Cambodia bless the oils that will be used in the coming year for anointing of the sick and other sacraments.
