I had a great time at the MAC (Mid Atlantic Congress) conference in Baltimore this past week and enjoyed numerous opportunities to meet and talk to so many wonderful people.
Thanks to all the people who worked so hard to make this conference such a success, especially the Association of Catholic Publishers.
For me, the highlights were: getting a chance to listen to Fr. Jim Martin, SJ, once again and to chat with him at the Loyola Press exhibit; to attend a very good workshop by Dr. Michael Horan and 15 or 20 catechetical leaders on Inspiring Catechetical Ministry with Children; and to have the privilege of doing 2 workshops of my own, one on Practice Makes Catholic and the other on my new book, 7 Keys to Spiritual Wellness, and meeting all of the wonderful people who attended those presentations.
A very special thanks to all of the hardworking Loyola Press people who set up, staff, and take down the LP exhibit space and provide such wonderful pastoral care for all those who visit looking for resources to assist them in their ministry.
