Well, I am interested in your opinion, but I want your prayers more.  I hope that I can have both.

He is a good pastor and he knows of my desire to serve.  He has a policy of avoiding putting laity in teaching positions, especially for RCIA.  In the majority of cases, this is probably a good idea.  It might even be a good idea in my case.  In spite of my degree, I do not have a good Catholic formation.  Can you believe that they give an MDiv degree without any requirement for Thomistic philosophy?  :o I ended up taking a one semester introductory course on the Summa because it fit my schedule and that is it.  Much of what I studied was of questionable orthodoxy or usefulness.  I feel like I need to do it all over again properly.

I serve in my parish by membership in the choir which the pastor started to promote tradition and Latin in our parish's music.  Singing does not come as easily to me as scholarship.  Perhaps this is a good thing.  I am far less tempted to pride as a singer than as a scholar.
