Stella has officially joined me as of 1pm on Monday, June 5, 2023.
Here’s a little video to commemorate her arrival. She is a bundle of energy!
It’s times like these you learn to live again
It’s times like these you give and give again
It’s times like these you learn to love again
It’s times like these time and time again

Stella, Day 1 (9 weeks old)
Stella is an F1B Bernedoodle: Mother is 1/1 Bernese Mountain Dog/Poodle; Dad is Miniature Poodle.
I’ve largely been absent from social media and video production lately. Here’s why: I’ve taken on new roles in my diocese. I am now the chancellor and I’m studying classes in canon law, while also being pastor in my parish.
But why are canon laws and other rules important? Let’s dive in.
I had two quests on this brief vacation: rest and take an epic photo of the comet NEOWISE. And, if at all possible, try to capture the northern lights. Join me in this little adventure in astrophotography!
(Spoiler alert: Stay to the end for some amazing photos! And a cameo by a certain dog who was really excited when I got home!)
Join myself ?? and Fr. Michael Liliedahl ?? as we have a conversation about the upcoming Sunday readings and discuss all things ‘homilies’! We are broadcasting on Facebook Live and YouTube, as well as making the audio podcast available.
In this time of isolation I thought it would be good to gather together as best we can to create some music. So I put the call out to put together a virtual choir to sing the classic Easter hymn, Jesus Christ is Risen Today. The arrangement was written by Bridget Olver, who also sings a couple of parts.
I was overwhelmed by the sheer volume and beauty of the submissions! Wow. People are so incredibly talented.
