Have much work to do. Am not going to the CMN (Catholic Marketing Network Tradeshow, but am sending a flyer along to be placed in a friend's booth. Have been twice before, but the budget director (me) hasn't allowed me to go last year or this year. Interestingly, it is in Cleveland this year. I would love to go cause I lived in Cleveland in the mid-to-late 80's for a couple years during graduate school. I know it has changed and wouldn't mind seeing it.
Back on the homefront, we are trying to plan a trip to our only local Marian Shrine: Our Lady of South Carolina - Our Lady of Hope. A recent article in the diocesan newspaper mentioned that the chaplain at the shrine just took evangelical vows and is a eremitic state, or recognized as a hermit by the Catholic Church-his ministry is to limited to working with pilgrims who come to the shrine. Maybe we'll get there some day next week?
Oremus pro invicem!
