Field of Dreams

I had a wonderful time in Peosta, Iowa, with over a hundred catechists, talking about the skills and knowledge that we need to be effective in our ministry. Thanks to all for the warm hospitality!

I had a chance to visit the Field of Dreams Movie Site in Dyersville! It was like a dream come true. This is one of my favorite movies of all time and it was so much fun to be there and to run the bases and walk into the cornfield. Here’s a few pics for you to enjoy!

    You’re right, “Field of Dreams” is an awesome movie with wonderful themes of forgiveness and responding to a call.
    It always makes my list of “faith” movies for families to discuss
