27 Years Ago Today

02OR03Forgive me if my mind isn’t fully on catechesis today. The reason? Today is my 27th wedding anniversary! On November 20, 1982, at the tender young age of 23, I married the love of my life, Joanne. I thank God for the many blessings that our marriage has brought into both of our lives and ask God for the grace to enjoy many more years of blessings!

Dinner tonight in downtown Chicago followed by Broadway in Chicago: The Addams Family – A New Musical!

In the meantime, be sure to access all of the goodies that I posted yesterday: resources for Advent from my Advent Webinar that took place Nov. 18. Have a great weekend!

    I am guessing that for you to be able to do all of the wonderful work that you do in your ministry, you get tremendous support from your wife. Best wishes to both of you for a very happy anniversary and another year filled with God’s many blessings.

    Many thanks for all that you do,

  2. Congratulations Joe.

    You know what they say? “Behind every great man…..”

    You are creeping into legendary territory here in your years of marriage.

    Have a wonderful night in our great city!

  4. Joe,
    I send belated anniversary wishes to you and Joanne. We have the same anniversary, my husband Jerry and I celebrated 38 years.
    We too dined downtown on Friday evening, what a coincidence.
    May you and yours have a happy thanksgiving. I have always loved this time of year, the reason we chose it to be married in November.
