Greetings from Cleveland!

Greetings from the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL) conference in Cleveland, OH! I’ve had a wonderful several days here meeting and chattting with so many wonderful catechetical ministers from all over the country.

I had the privilege of doing a new product showcase for Loyola Press on Monday, helping LP to host a Diocesan Directors Luncheon on Tuesday, and presenting a breakout session today. In between, I had a chance to take in a Cleveland Indians game on Monday and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum on Tuesday.

I especially enjoyed having 2 of my brothers, John and Ron, and a childhood friend, John Tokarski, along with me for these several days, The 4 of us grew up together and it was nice to catch up and have some fun in the middle of a business trip! It was also nice to have my sister Ann and her husband Bob and son  Grant along with us on Monday.

Here’s the Dicoesan Directors Lunch on Tuesday followed by a pic of the group of us at the ball game on Monday.
