JOHN BOSCO DAY
Bishop Mitchell Rozanski has agreed to be with us as we gather in prayer as a community on January 31. Please set aside this day which is being co-sponsored by the DYYAM and the Association of Professional Youth Ministers.
► We moved over to Vertical Response to improve how this e-newsletter looks in your e-mail in-box. Your feedback on how this is working for you would be greatly appreciated.
► The On the Way newsletter comes out every three weeks to a large list we serve. On the off-Thursdays, we send out a briefer Two Minutes newsletter to a smaller list. You can catch links to all our newsletters in our archives.
Speaking of Halloween, Father Brian Nolan will be on EWTN tonight at 10pm discussing Mount St. Mary’s "Back from the Dead Cemetery Walk." Great idea for the future!
