Boasting about Boston

I had a wonderful day in the Archdiocese of Boston today, meeting with about 60 catechetical leaders for a Being, Knowing, and Doing professional development workshop. Big thanks to Susan Abbott (Director, Office of Religious Education) and Susan Kay (Assistant Director for Catechetical Leadership) for arranging the event and to all the good folks who so enthusiastically participated in this day. Congrats to your Boston Bruins for winning game 7 of their series against the Montreal Canadiens! Enjoy it now because next year the Chicago Blackhawks will be BACK!!!

  1. Dear Joe,
    Thank you for coming to Braintree yesterday. I really enjoyed your workshop. Workshops are good when they involve full participation and that is what we did. Fully participated. This is a workshop we can utilize to get our Catechists and parents involved too!
    Peace to you,

  2. This was one of the best workshops ever! Grounded in solid theology and catechesis, with practical advice that is easy to follow, and fun – enjoyably interactive. I wanted to run from the workshop and find a group of catechists I could work with to use all the good materials I experienced.
    If this workshop comes to your area run to sign up.
    Thanks Joe (and Cynthia)
