Greetings from the lobby of my hotel room in Anaheim, where I’ll be attending the Diocese of LA’s Religious Education Congress for the next four days! I’m so excited that I could barely sleep last night! Today I’ll hear Mark Hart speak, have lunch with the folks from Ave Maria Press, listen to two more great presentations, and then head to Disneyland for the evening. I may try to post updates and photos from Congress on my Facebook page, so if you’re interested, you can check out my updates there. Hope you’re having a great start to your Lent. If you happen to be in Anaheim too for this event, drop me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org – I’d love to meet you in person!
