I got the call this morning that I had been hoping for. The Commission on Ministry was satisfied with my interviews yesterday, and has recommended to the Bishop that I be named a postulant.

It will not be official until I get the Bishop's letter, but he generally accepts the Commission's recommendation, so it looks like I'll be going to Big Old Seminary in August.

I am so very grateful to the Lord, to my husband and children, to my parish family, to our extended family, and to all of you, who have been so encouraging and kind to me.

P.S. Sophia, I took your advice, and reminded myself to breathe periodically while in the interviews. Best advice I could have gotten!

Praise God!

(Since it's Lent I'm skipping the "A" word.)

So pleased for you.
Now, onward with that house sorting ;-)
Hugs and blessings xx

Blessings, Sister. May you continue to know this excitement about your vocation even in the midst of academic tedium and ecclesial messiness. (It can happen! I'll celebrate the 25th anniversaries this year [Diaconate on Saturday and Priesthood in October] and I'm still pretty excited about mine a lot of the time.)

I'm still walking on air. Of course, I'm still waiting for the official letter of postulancy from the Bishop, so I should keep one foot planted on the ground.

Thanks for all the messages of congratulations and support.

Congratulations! I've just come across your blog and it's wonderful. I hope you don't mind me adding you onto my page of links.
