Personally, I am very frustrated. I probably should not be here (St. Norbert) at all. Daily, I step into and out of the life of staff, administration and parishioners lives. I step in and out because I cannot physically or mentally follow through on any of the issues I step in to. This is probably my fault to begin with. I probably should never have stepped in? I am not doing my job and I am not capable of doing it right now. What is before me? What do I keep thinking about? What do I step in and out of? 2 upcoming capital campaigns, finding and hiring a new principal for a school with a shrinking enrollment, managing 2 parishes, merging/combining 2 parishes, merging or combining 2 staffs, dealing with unattained goals set by one staff over a year ago, dealing with the uncertainty of staff members (Probably connected to my uncertainty?),——————–I am now maxed out. My brain cannot absorb, categorize, prioritize these issues and the others that keep arising within me and the life of the Parish. I cannot do my job. Honestly, there is no one in the Archdiocese who can help. They are maxed out because we keep adding items to their job descriptions and/or they are incompetent.
I am broken and not recovering fast enough, they are broken and can’t see it or do not have the person power to overcome it.
