well as a recap, a few weeks back, we found out that our priest had been transferred to another parish, so we would have to meet his replacement once he started. well, today i was trying to approach this proactively and try to book a meeting with the new priest this weekend when i'm home. i called the church and left a message for the new priest, "Father John". about 25 minutes later, Fr. John called me back...
the good news: we can meet with Fr. John on Saturday when i'm home.
the bad news: Fr. John is leaving in a month, and then a new guy will come replace him!!!!!!!!!
so remember what happens when i get really frustrated? here i am, on the phone with this new priest whose first day was today, practically getting ready to cry because i am trying to absorb this horrible news. we live on the other side of the country so the first and only time we're going to meet our new priest is... THE DAY OF THE WEDDING!!?!?!
we had a good relationship with our old priest, he was so helpful to us in the planning from across the country, and it would be ideal to have someone who you know and have a relationship with perform the ceremony... but now it sounds like we're going to be shaking this new guy's hand introducing ourselves and then he's gonna be announcing us as husband and wife!
