Quadri-location

So what were you doing at 7.30 this evening? Here is an interesting insight into parish life....
At 7pm this evening, parents of children at St Brigid's and St Paul's who are receiving their First Holy Communion this year were meeting with myself and the two catechists in St Brigid's Hall meeting room.
At the same time in Christ the King Centre, confirmation candidates from all 3 Churches were starting their first session of preparation for the Sacrament in March.
At 7.15 our regular Sunday evening Prayer Group gathered in the sacristy at St Brigid's for their time of prayer and praise. Usually I join them but...
And at the same time our 3 Churches United for Justice and Peace group were starting their monthly meeting in the main hall at St Brigid's. I switched to them after time with the mums.
First Communion parents, Confirmation candidates, charismatic prayer group, Justice and Peace workers. Who said that parish life is boring?  And that is just one evening, and a Sunday one at that! Oh, and by the way, anyone know how to be in four places at once? If being in two places at once is bilocation, I think this must be called "quadri-location".
For a little tranquility, here is a photo from my 2010 archives of the farmhouse near Llangynwyd, south of Maesteg, where my ancestors lived 350 year ago...
