A Shout Out to Des Moines, IA

Recently, I had the pleasure of doing a day-long presentation on A Church on the Move: 52 Ways to Get Mission and Mercy in Motion for the Diocese of Des Moines, IA. The event was sponsored by the Catechetical Leaders Association of the Diocese of Des Moines (CLADD) and was attended by about 80 pastoral ministers: pastors, deacons, catechetical leaders, youth ministers, diocesan personnel, and parish staff members. Thanks to John Gaffney, Director for the Department of Evangelization and Catechesis, for organizing the event! Here are some pictures of the day, including my colleague, Carol Kelly, the Educational Consultant for the region.
