There is a lot going on this month. Join our dauntless teachers in Illinois, Memphis, Seattle, Detroit, Brooklyn, and Idaho for some life-changing, fun, and high energy formation.
First of all, Fr. Mike will be celebrating his birthday tomorrow in his home town of Washington, Illinois where he and Keith will be teaching a Called & Gifted workshop at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. Local boy makes very good. We're informing Keith about the uber-secret birthday thing (you didn't hear it from me!) so that he can torment Fr. Mike in whatever way his fiendish, sci-fi writer's brain can come up with.
The following weekend (November 12, 13) it will be Memphis, Seattle, and Detroit.
There will be a Called & Gifted workshop at Incarnation Catholic Church in Collierville, TN while the dynamic Fr. Bryan will be teaching another C & G at St. Madeleine Sophie parish in Bellevue, Washington (hey Eryn!).
Meanwhile, I will be spend November 13 giving a day on discerning personal mission and call at the Archdiocese of Detroit's Women's Conference. (It will be a good time so y'all come now, ya hear! And come up and introduce yourself! I'd love to meet you.)
Afterwards, I'll have three discernment-related regional gigs in the Pontiac, MI area. Then I'll be winging my way to Brooklyn, NY where Keith and I will be meeting up at Most Precious Blood Church on November 19 and 20 for another Called & Gifted workshop. This will be so cool since it will be our first workshop in the Diocese of Brooklyn and my first chance to experience that wonderful town.
Fr. Mike will be offering a retreat in Gooding, Idaho that same weekend at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church while Fr. Bryan will be teaching a Called & Gifted workshop at St. Bridget's Church in Seattle.
Which I think will be our 446th live C & G since I offered the first one as a volunteer to 20 hand-picked people in Seattle in the fall of 1993. What an amazing, fascinating, blessed journey it has been to catch a glimpse of what God is doing in his sons and daughters.
