Radiant Magazine (a publication of OSV) shared these two examinations of conscience for women during Holy Week. I thought they were so great, I had to share them with you to share with your parishioners.
Earlier this spring our team put together the best ideas from Transform Your Parish into an easy to download and share eBook. Have you seen it yet?
At the beginning of the year I started following a new political account on Instagram. Her name is Sharon McMahon, and she is a former government teacher who spends her days sharing the facts with her almost 600k followers. I’ve learned more from her in the past four months about government than I did in the previous 35 years of my life. But this post isn’t about government, politics, or even current events – it’s about a concept she keeps coming back to that we need more of in our lives.
One of my favorite things this Lent is the daily edition of my favorite pilgrimage guide’s podcast: The Catholic Traveler Podcast. Mountain Butorac and Joannie Watson are sharing this beautiful Roman tradition with all of us – and without the ability to travel to Italy in person I am here for it.
One of my favorite podcasts interviewed Kelli Kelly, “the founder of Hand to Hold – a non-profit in Austin, TX working with hospitals to provide premie parents with education, resources and perhaps most importantly, support and empathy.”
I’ve shared about Springtide Research Institute before a few times, but wanted to share this interview from the founder being interviewed by the millennial hosts of Jesuitical. I found it to be interesting listening to Dr. Josh Packard speak about this next generation – the members of our Church who are under 25. They’re looking for something specific from the Church, and I’m not sure we’re delivering.
Join us for a “Conversation with Coach Katie” to find out! I’d love to have you on my new webinar where we talk what we’re hearing from parishioners to these very intriguing questions.
A few parishes have been embracing the #GiveHim21 campaign for Lent and asked for more ideas for Easter. I know we’re only in the early weeks of Lent (Day 17 as I write this), but we need to plan ahead! So I wanted to share some non-Lenten ideas to continue the momentum.
Dear Catholic Parishes, You are not in competition with one another. Stop acting like it. Blessings, Katie
We’re living in a broken culture – one that seems to value division over unity and being right over being charitable. Conversations seem to begin with defensiveness – which as Byron Katie says is the first act of war.
