Thank you to all of you who joined me for the Diocese of Fresno Congress this weekend. I enjoyed meeting you and spending time discussing Catholic Parenting with you. For those who are interested, you can find my presentation notes here – presentation notes – PDF version. The following is the prayer we used to close our session:
Gracious God, you have made us a family.
Thank you for choosing us to be together.
We want to listen more closely, to care more tenderly, to act more courageously,
so that we may do our part in building your Kingdom, bringing peace and compassion.
Filled with your Spirit, send us forth to be the Body of Christ to to all we meet.
We ask this in Jesus’ name.
