A Well-Built Faith in Green Bay, WI

I spent a wonderful Friday with 200 Administrators (Catholic school principals, DREs, Adult Faith Formation Coordinators, etc.) on the topic of my book, A Well-Built Faith. The folks there really outdid themselves, creating an environment that brought the Well-Built Faith imagery to life. Take a look at these pics! Thanks to all the good folks of the Diocese of Green Bay for a great day and God bless you in your ministry!
Here's a look at the beautiful crowd that I had the privilege of spending the day with.

  1. Hi Joe–loved the presentation at Green Bay! I am using your HELP during our common prayer/teaching time at Faith Formation tonight : ) I wanted to share with you an excellent resource that I have used to be liturgical with classes: “Liturgical Gestures, Wrods, Objects” by Notre Dame Center for Pastoral Liturgy, 1995. I was introduced to this at a graduate course on Lay Presiding. I used portions of it as the framework for my Confirmation/Sponsor day of Reflection and practice for the Sacrament of Confirmation. We talked about “body praying” as we walked through practice for the liturgy. It was very prayerful and really helped the students to get into the solemnity of the liturgical gestures and postures of the practice & the celebration. Thanks, again for your inspiring and affirming talk–you are a blessing. Peace, Mary Armbrust: Youth Minister/Faith Formation Director, St. Mary Parish & SS. Joseph & Edward Parish
