The Deacon's Bench

The Deacon's Bench


For the past year or so, I’ve been affiliated with the folks over at Liturgical Publications, based in Wisconsin, writing material for their homiletics newsletter, “Connect!”.

They have a wide array of resources for preachers and parishes — everything from bulletin inserts to cartoons to essays and commentaries to help catechists and homilists.

They also happen to be nice people.

Curious? Check ’em out. You’ll be glad you did. If you stop by, say hello for me!

Thank you, deacondog! Stop by anytime. I’m surprised more deacons haven’t taken up bloggery. I hope it can be a wonderful way to “preach what I believe.”
