“The Poster Child of Former Catholics is a Disaffected Teenager”

There's plenty to chew on when reading "Faith in Flux: Changes in the Religious Affiliation in the U.S." recently released by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life. [Read the U.S. Catholic Bishops' press release and the full report by the Pew Foundation.] The report indicates that for those who have left the Catholic Read more…

Part of the Plan

A nice way to spend a sunny Friday afternoon. Girls tennis, already up three matches, enroute to a home victory over Sturgis. Boys baseball, across campus, caps the comeback with a ninth-inning winning run against Cape Tech. Congratulations, Lions!

Tripping Lily

I was already jazzed for Red Molly this spring, having seen them earlier this winter in Martsons Mills and then adding some of their great music to my iPod.

Their World

Pardon my downtime…while numerous new and noteworthy events have transpired since my last post (Congratulations, Alissa!), I've been remiss in keeping up. Anyone with an RSS feed likely thinks we've disappeared. Intentional reference, RSS feed is. This is a term and concept I only recently discovered. While I   consider myself passably competent in computer Read more…

Sound the Retreat!

It’s nice to have big brothers and sisters sometimes, especially in these first “underclass” years. For the second year, senior Campus Ministry students from Bishop Stang High School assisted JPII staff with our (very important) day of retreat for the Class of 2011. I was impressed (again!) and grateful to these young women and men Read more…
