Diocese of Fresno Presentation


cong-banner-260-150-enThank 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.

  1. Lisa, this is a seriously great presentation. In Boston they would say wicked good. You should copyright it because folks like me who help in catechesis might want to “borrow” it for our parents here in my parish. What a shame you are 3000 miles away. I would love to hear you and have others hear you speak. Mark
