Dallas was HOT! But oh what a wonderful time we had there Saturday! A crew of us from Loyola Press swept in to spend the day with nearly 600 catechists looking at The Role of the Catechist. I did the English segment (seeings how I’m learning to speak that language pretty good) and my talented and charming friend and colleague Miguel Arias did the Spanish segment. A great big THANKS to all of the wonderful people who were so welcoming and engaging and a special shout out to the 2 catechists who happily announced that they have been serving as catechists for 55 and 61 years respectively!!! What an inspiration! Here are some pics.
This is me with about 250 of my best friends!
Here are some of the crowds swarming the Loyola Press tables during the break
Here is Miguel Arias speaking to just over 300 of his best friends!
Here, a woman who has been a catechist for 55 years demonstrates to us how she teaches children to pray the Our Father using gestures…what an inspiration she was to all of us!
