Wednesday greetings from Boston.
The annual convention of the National Catholic Education Association kicks off today here in the "hub of the universe."
I am giving a presentation tomorrow focused on weaving music into the parish catechetical and Catholic School religious education programs.
WLP is sponsoring John Angotti and his band tomorrow evening at a banquet of another group gathered here in Boston in connection with NCEA. The NPCD is the National Association of Parish Catechetical Directors; that group is meeting here as well.
There are just under 9,000 gathered here for this combined convention. It is an unusual exhibit area; you have companies exhibiting everything from school gym flooring to chocolates to be sold for school fundraisers; there are catechetical publishers as well as publishers of math and science books. It should be an exciting balance of the week. The extra bonus for me is that I get to see my family while here in Massachusetts.
I hope that your Easter Octave continues to be a time of joy.
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
