With fall coming upon us, it's time to start harvesting some cows. This year has brought a couple new additions to our operation, a big block and a contraption.

One thing I love about Campbell County is the way they use their resources for the betterment of youth. One example of this is the 5th grade annual retreat to Mallo Camp in Weston County. Here kids get to enjoy the great outdoors and learn about the wisdom of nature. Our John Paul II Catholic School has jumped on board of this CC tradition and each fall takes up their 5th and 6th graders. Today, fb got to tag along.
The camp is located just on the west side of the Black Hills and is privately owned.
Ms. Bailey packs a lot into 2 1/2 days.
Staff from the school comes up, but we also rely on the help of volunteers. Here Kurt, Dcn. Kim, Jeff, and Scott serve lunch amongst many other jobs.
Canoeing is an all-time favorite.
Botany is a good education as well.
My personal favorite was kickball.

Humility is not thinking less of ourselves, but thinking of ourselves less.

It takes a while to implement the vision of Council Fathers. Seminary formation is an example of this.

Surf Wyoming 2021
WARNING: Neither Fr. Bryce or Kurt are responsible for putting cool ideas into the minds of those who are wild at heart.
Friday marked our annual Surf Wyoming adventure. This year's destination, Mirror Lake in the Big Horns.
You can't just call on any buddy for a mission like this. Ol' Kurt was the right man for the job.
In a nut shell, we saddle the horses and pack our paddle board into mountain lakes and conquer them. I figured there was no better way for Kurt to learn to ride a horse than with a 40 pound pack on his back. Chief and him did well. I can think of three major episodes where lesser cowboys would have turned back and walked home. Well done ol' son. You make me proud.
Once arrived we hobbled the horses and went to work.

Just Do It
To begin to forgive from the heart, start to pray for the other person.
What not to say in a Homily
The trinity of Christ's authority on earth is Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and the Magisterium.

With the cows getting fat and the grass getting thin, it was time to pull the girls off the Raney Ranch. Working yearlings is no easy task, so I called my boys Greg and Zeke and brought in a couple of hands from EWTN.

I've joked that Chief is part angel. That's kind of cute, but mostly true. See, he is a straight gift from God. Here's ho...
You can't cram the Christian language. Study Sacred Scripture. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yzI--yLL0kw
