In My Mind, I'm Goin' to Carolina…

Actually, not only in my mind but also in my body! I’m off to Charotte, North Carolina for a couple of presentations before heading to Columbia, SouthCarolina for a presentation on Saturday! I look forward to meeting lots of catechists and DREs from the Carolinas. Thought maybe I’d catch a break from the Chicago weather for a few days but it sounds like our midswestern winter weather is following me there! Oh well, I’ll just have to count on warm hearts!

  1. Joe,
    My wife and I attended your talk at St. Gabriel last night and really enjoyed it. Thanks for coming and maybe some time in the future you might consider doing a half or full day retreat based on “A Well-Built Faith” for those of us who aren’t catechists. Safe travels, and of course…Go Cubs!
