  1. Thanks for putting this all together in one place – especially the You tube videos. What a great resource as we start a new year in catechetics! (And being from Milwaukee, it was nice to see so many videos from our Archdiocese – in case you didn’t know, they have just launched a new series, Catholic ID)

    • Thanks Maureen. I really like the videos that Milwaukee has been sharing: very inviting and informative while respecting the intelligence of the viewer (i.e. the bishop doesn’t try to act cool/hip…he’s just himself).
