Parish life is non-stop. Whether it’s a marriage prep, meeting with a family after a loved one has passed, visiting an elementary class, or leading a bible study, there’s always a next thing to do. In the midst of all of the bustle, it’s incredibly easy for details to slip through the cracks and small annoyances to start adding up.

Life for new associate pastors can be crazy. Not only are they adjusting to a new public life as a priest, they are meeting hundreds if not thousands of new people, trying to figure out the workflow of the parish, learning how to follow the guidance of their pastor, administering the Sacraments, and trying to be fully present each step along the way.

Simply put, there’s a lot going on. So for most of us, after the wedding comes and goes, we wipe the sweat off of our forehead, and say “Thank God that’s over.” And then we move on to the next emergency. The hard reality of parish life is that there is no let up.
