2007 has been quite a year for the Catherine of Siena Institute: 78 live events in total - including 46 Called & Gifted workshops, 5 parish missions, 9 one-of-a-kind presentations; 12 gifts-related training events, and 2 Making Disciples seminars.

December 31 will mark the end of our first year of blogging here at ID. You have paid us over 90,000 visits this year. While that is nothing compared to the big boys and girls (before she cut back to spend more time writing, Amy Welborn probably had that many visitors in a month!), we're happy.

We have written our 1300 posts this year in and around those 78 events and the 500 plane flights required to get our many wonderful teachers to those events, between answering the thousands of phone calls and e-mails from all over the world, publishing and shipping out thousands of formation books and cds, and responding to hundreds of donors whose continual generosity enables us to do all the rest. Oh yeah, and then there's the continuous research and writing necessary to keep producing new lay formation resources. God has blessed and sustained us in the midst of the never ending demands.

It makes for erratic but interesting blogging and I wanted to say "thank you, thank you!" to all who have dropped by this year and especially to those of you who have commented and added to the richness of the conversation. And thanks to Fr. Mike, Kathleen, the other Sherry, Keith, Br. Matthew, Bernadette, JACK and all who have posted on ID this year.

2008 is shaping up to be even busier: so far we have 50 events on the Institute calendar and the year hasn't begun: 30 Called & Gifted workshops, 9 parish missions (Fr. Mike is the mission king!), 4 special events (including some very exceptional gigs like World Youth Day!) and 5 Making Disciples seminars.

But we are also looking forward to another year of blogging on Intentional Disciples. A Happy and Blessed New Year to you all!

carrots cheap viagra read wrought cuisine If your destination is on the Northeast Corridor, this isn't a big deal (departures are every hour) but in other parts of the country the next train may not be until tomorrow. If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time. A major Amtrak line in regular daily use by Americans is the Acela Express line, running between Boston and Washington, D. Financial and managerial accounting principles.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama. My BF and I both agree that his son could not move into my home (which would ultimately be our home), so I am left to wait.
