Confirmation Boot Camp and the YOUCAT


For six four-hour days this month, I was part of the teaching duo for our Confirmation Boot Camp. A lot of people responded to me on Twitter and Facebook, wanting details and more information, so I’ll outline it a little here and share my new favorite Catholic resource, the YOUCAT. Now, I know that there […]

Reviewing A Biblical Walk through the Mass


I’ve only been Catholic for ten years. The only Mass I know is the Mass we have now. And I love it. It speaks to me, no matter if the music is bad, the homily is dry, the whole thing full of distractions (in pew and out). I was especially interested to receive a copy […]

A Letter to My Dad Upstairs

Dear God, I don’t always think of You on Father’s Day, but you sure are on my mind a lot. You’re the first one I should go to, Father, with all those cares and concerns. You’re the one who’s supposed to be driving; you’re the one who knows what’s going on. Right? (Yeah, that’s me […]
