A Forum for Committed Catholics, Cultural Catholics, Disaffiliated Catholics, and Everybody in Between


Lenten Reflections
on Scripture and the Synod

I designed these materials for my own parish and have sent them far and wide.  So far and wide as a matter of fact, that they are also available on the Vatican's Synod Newsletter!  Take and use as they work for you.

Exploring the Catholic Experience

Over the years, I’ve seen and heard so many stories of steadfast faith and painful disaffiliation, and participated in hundreds of stimulating conversations about the future of the church. This blog is a place for all those conversations to land, collect, and inform us as we, the church, step out onto new ground.

To Listen

“I can’t wait to get more email,”  said no one ever.  But please subscribe. Conversations are two-way streets. The active listener is as important as the person sharing their experience. There is no other site out there quite like this one.  I’ve checked.  I think you’ll find that you’ll want to hear what people have to say.  Who knows, someday you may want to share your Catholic experience with us too.
