Thanks St. Clement Moms!


447px-St._Clement_MassA huge “thank you” to the moms of St. Clement Church in Chicago, Illinois for their kind invitation to spend time last night discussing “Self Care for Moms” with their Moms Spirituality Group.  It was such a pleasure to be with the women who gathered for a brief insight into The Handbook for Catholic Moms.

The more time I spend in the company of Catholic moms, the more hopeful I am about the future of our Church.  With so many faith filled women dedicating themselves to their domestic churches, our future leaders are getting a great base for their faith formation, as well as a true knowledge of God’s continual love for each for us.

Thank you again to the “Anns” who made last night possible, and to all those who made the effort to come out.  Also, just a quick reminder that I will be speaking briefly and signing books tonight at the Pauline Book and Media Center on Michigan Avenue here in Chicago at 6:30 pm, and on Saturday, 4/17 at the Hammes Bookstore at Notre Dame at 1:00 pm.  I’d love to meet you in person!

If you would like to bring me out to speak with your parish or organization, please email
