A great big THANK YOU to all the good folks (nearly 300 of ya’s from Bucks and Montgomery Counties) who came out on Thursday night in Bucks County, PA, for A Catechist’s Night Out! I was honored and privileged to have the opportunity to spend the evening with you talking about the catechetical process and creative ways of keeping kids engaged in religious education.
Here I am with one of PA’s finest ladies, Marie Scanlon, who formerly was a colleague of mine at Loyola Press. She was also formerly the Coordinator of Assessment for the Catechism Division of the U.S. Bishops’ Department of Education. She has served and continues to serve (in “retirement” capacity) the catechetical ministry of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia with great dedication. I was so tickled by her visit…she couldn’t even stay for my presentation but drove a half hour just to say “Hi!” We hadn’t seen one another in about 6 years. Thanks Marie!
