Yet another rite of passage in the "year in the life of the Church" is coming up. Annual Meeting. This means that in my first two months of ministry, I will have done my first Holy Week (a priest's SuperBowl/TaxDay/you name it stressful season), first Annual Meeting, first Visitation from the Diocesan (another stressor) and finally, the conclusion of my first program year. No stress there. On top of that, I get to settle in to the parish lifestyle.
Wouldn't change if for a moment.
Just needing to vent a bit. Even priests get stressed.
