Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Boys Weekend


Jennifer and Meg have gone up north for the Michigan La Leche League Conference. They left today so the boys and I are on our own until Sunday evening.

We are off to a good start. After the 12:15 Mass we went over and cheered on the Tigers to a 7-3 victory over the Mariners! It was a great game! The attendance was over 37,000 for a weekday game - amazing for a Thursday afternoon (lots of school groups).

Here are a couple of photos from the game, one with the church behind us taken from the 300 level, the other with the field behind us on the main concourse.

Tonight they are helping me cook the Alpha Dinner and then tomorrow we have all day to play! Saturday is tightly scheduled with baseball games and karate testing.
Sunday Morning I have to get them all up, dressed, fed, and to St. John's before 7:30am.
