Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

Thanks for the prayers.......

I am back from my oral exams.
I completed my comprehensive orals exams today.
The testing was a comprehensive review of all the material covered in the last 5 years and boy was I nervous........
Even though I had been extremely nervous that last few days, when it came to the oral exams, although difficult and challenging, I maintained peaceful and relaxed. This could of only been possible, knowing myself and how I react at times like this, to be a result of your prayers and God's grace.
Thank you again.
So what is next:
1. Meeting with the Bishop on April 30th.
2. Final Diaconate class weekend in May
3. Pre-0rdination retreat in Tahoe June 1-6th
4. Ordination June 7, 2008
Liz and I cannot believe that the last 5 years have gone by so fast, and look forward to this wonderful journey that is just about to begin......
