Monday greetings from the home office here in Franklin Park, Illinois.
On Thursday, I am headed to Tucson, Arizona to speak at their diocesan faith formation conference. It will be good to get out of this cold. We are expecting heavy snow, ice, and freezing rain tonight into tomorrow morning; should be an interesting commute to work tomorrow morning!
We are gearing up for the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, which begins a week from Thursday in Anaheim.
WLP will be sponsoring the art exhibit, which is set up in the large hallway between the convention center arena and the exhibit hall. It will feature the art from Brother Mickey McGrath's new book, Dear Young People: Inspiration from Pope Francis for Everyone.
The display should be quite beautiful; some of the display materials arrived here today.
We are looking forward to sharing this art and the messages of Pope Francis with the thousands who will gather in Southern California next week. If you plan on being at Congress, please stop by the WLP booth (right inside the exhibit hall from the arena hallway) and say "Hey Jerry, gotta sing, gotta pray!"
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
