P.S. I’m returning home from a great trip to Fall River, MA, where I spent a day with DREs and catechists talking about Practice Makes Catholic and A Well-Built Faith. Many thanks to Margie Copeland for organizing the hosting both events. I enjoyed watching the Bruins win while at a bar in Bruins’ territory! Great fun!
