Above: The April 18, 2009, prayer breakfast hosted by the Catholic Coalition for Church Reform.

The primary purpose of the prayer breakfast was to announce and plan a series of “Synods of the Baptized,” scheduled to take place within the local church over the next two-three years. The keynote speaker at the breakfast was Janet Hauter, vice-president of Voice of the Faithful (National) and co-chair of the American Catholic Council.

Every Thursday, Ken and I deliver meals to house-bound people. He drives and I deliver. We make a great team!
