If I could tell you the one thing I absolutely hate, it would be confrontation. I dislike when people are upset with me or dissatisfied with a decision that I made - and I will almost always do whatever it takes to make them happy. However, this week I went face to face, head to head with a volunteer about her continued involvement with our programming. The answer ended up being no because of her thoughts about some of the Church's teachings (basically that someday the Church will catch up with the culture and she is a more progressive thinker because she can see people's needs and respond to them - the Church doesn't though) specifically regarding homosexuality and gay marriage.

Last Saturday I took our middle and high school students to the Diocesan Eucharistic Congress. In the morning after the procession I had the kids explore the vendors and take tons of photos with the nuns, priests, interesting booths, and even the Pope!!!
