I set a goal to visit every parish in my diocese. There are 74 total Catholic churches in the diocese and I have visited 25 of them. But I recently realized that I have been leaving my home parish hanging. You know, I’m a young, able-bodied guy that could be doing some things for my home parish but because I’m visiting a new parish every weekend, I don’t get to participate in the different ministries my parish has. And, the parish pastor and parochial vicar don’t really know who I am.
What would you guys do? Keep going on with the journey, which will take about another year to complete? Or should I turn around and stay at home (parish)? Don’t I have a responsibility to help my home parish?
