I just spent a wonderful morning with a number of catechetical leaders and catechists about an hour out of Denver in beautiful Colorado Springs, CO! I am especially grateful that everything worked out because just about 36 hours ago, I was in bed with a fever and a cough that had me barking like a dog. Luckily, I was able to see the doc on Tuesday, get some meds, rest up, and fly out Wednesday and do my presentation today, sans fever (and very little cough). Thank you, Jesus!
A great big THANK YOU to the many good folks who came out to spend the morning exploring ways to provide meaningfuland practical formation for our catechists. Thanks to everyone for understanding that I was a little bit wobbly and for picking up the slack with some outstanding participation! Thanks to Kathy Bull (Total Catholic Education & Youth/Young Adult Ministries Assistant) for making all the arrangements for the day and to Michelle Maher, (Director of Catechesis for the Diocese of Colorado Springs) for welcoming us all. Thanks to the staff at Our Lady of the Pines for hosting us and for your wonderful hospitality!
I fly home tomorrow and begin planning my lesson for this coming Monday’s session with my 4th graders! I haven’t seen them for a couple of weeks because of holidays and special events in the RE program.
