Welcome to My New Look!

Well, I still look the same but my blog has a new look!

I hope you enjoy this new look. To mark the 2nd anniversary of Catechist’s Journey, my site has undergone a little “face-lift.” In addition to the new look, my blog has also been integrated into the new Loyola Press Web site (www.loyolapress.com). I hope you take a moment to explore the site and the wealth of resources that Loyola Press now offers online. From articles around topics about our faith, to discussion groups on subjects that matter most to us, to a new blog by Fr. Paul Campbell, SJ titled People for Others, Loyola Press is excited to offer material and conversations that are deeply relevant to anyone seeking to deepen their faith.

For the past 7 years, I have had the pleasure and privilege of working at Loyola Press, a Jesuit Ministry, in Chicago, IL. As an apostolate of the Chicago Province of the Society of Jesus, Loyola Press seeks to nurture faith-filled lives. My role as a catechist flows from that apostolate and the integration of my blog into the Loyola Press Web site further reinforces both my and Loyola Press’s dedication to serve the mission of the Gospel.

The focus of my blog will not change: I will continue to share my journey of teaching the Catholic faith as a catechist and host our conversations about the challenges and rewards of this ministry in which we are privileged to serve. As always, I welcome your feedback. Please feel free to send suggestions and comments.

P.S. Maybe I DO have a new look. The printed registration guidebook for the 2009 Los Angeles Religious Education Congress has a picture next to my name and workshop description that makes me look 25 years younger and whole lot cooler than I look now or ever did look! i.e. they put a pic of the wrong person in! Maybe I’ll get increased registration because of this hunk’s pic!

I wish I looked this young!
I wish I looked this young!
