Diocese of Trenton, photo by Joe MooreThis post is long overdue, as I've mostly been on the road for the past several weeks. August began with keynote talks for Catholic school conferences in the Archdiocese of San Francisco and the Diocese of Laredo. Later in the month, I had lots of fun with he catechetical leaders in the Diocese of Trenton this past August, as we discussed "Engaging Children and Evangelizing Families." What a wonderful day we had together!

Our skit with catechists in Tokyo.October began with a keynote talk at the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston's Early Childhood Conference, followed by a talk together with my wife at the St. Francis Center in Tokyo, Japan. It was wonderful to hear about what the Catholic community in Tokyo is doing and to share some new ideas with catechists there. A special thanks to those of you who volunteered to be a part of our Bible story skit (see photo).

Later in that same week, I had the honor of speaking at the National Shrine of St. Therese of Lisieux (my favorite saint!) in Darien, IL. Special thanks to Fr. Bob for his hospitality and to all who participated in our engaging discussion on the role of Scripture in the life of the Little Flower. This was followed by a filled-to-capacity talk the next day at the Chicago Catechetical Conference. 

After Chicago, I jumped on a plane to get to Vancouver, for a talk to catechists and catechetical leaders the following day. Thanks so much for the warm welcome you gave me there! I'm so encouraged by all that is happening in the Archdiocese of Vancouver, and it was a privilege to meet Archbishop Miller as well. October wrapped up with talks in the Diocese of Stockton and a  day with Catechetical Leaders in the Diocese of Bridgeport, CT. It was great getting to know some of you so well and talking about exciting things to come!

Speaking of what's ahead, my 2015 speaking calendar will be posted soon, but here's a preview. I'm so excited to be coming soon to New Orleans, El Paso, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Springfield, Orlando, Santa Fe, Milwaukee, Trenton, St. Augustine, and TWO upcoming dates in Philadelphia (including a talk at the World Meeting of Families). Looking forward to meeting more of you as we work together to share the treasures of our faith!!
