I enjoyed a wonderful week on the east coast last week, spending Monday and Tuesday in the Diocese of Wilmington, DE, and Wednesday through Friday on the Jersey Shore with the parish catechetical leaders of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia!
Thanks to all for a wonderful time and for your great energy, creativity, and dedication to the catechetical ministry!
Here are some pics:Fr. Steve Delacy, Director of Vocations for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, presided beautifully at the liturgies at Avalon and also was available for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. He was such a tremendous presence during this gathering! This group knows how to celebrate! We enjoyed a rousing singalong after dinner led by the talented Mr. Bill Monaghn, who also provided outstanding music for our liturgies. Bill has a number of excellent resources for catechesis and liturgy on his Web site, www.monaghanmusic.com. Now, that’s a room with a view! The Jersey Shore from the Golden Inn, Avalon.
I also wanted to give a shout out to Catechist Resources LLC, a small, family-owned Catholic publishing company that specializes in resoruces to support religious education (reproducibles, etc.) Take a look at http://www.catechistplace.com.
Hello Mr. Paprocki,
I was in Wildwood, Nj at a Charismatic Convention the weekend of 10/10-10/12/14 and Fr. Delacy did our opening mass and held workshops that were very informative and full of humor. I wish I could have joined you in Avalon prior to the weekend. Did you happen to attend this convention? Please let me know if you will be coming back to New Jersey and I can hopefully plan on attending where you are. You’re the best!!
Thank you kindly!!
Thanks Adele. I have no immediate plans to return to Jersey but it’s one of my favorite places to visit so I’m sure I’ll be back before long.
