Praise cheeses: On the road to Wisconsin

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 01/08/18

I got back last night from scenic (and very cold) Norwich, Connecticut, where I had the privilege of speaking at the diocese’s deacon convocation.

Now, I’m headed to another tropical oasis in January: Hales Corners, Wisconsin.  I’ll be offering a few thoughts on preachingat the Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology, not far from Milwaukee. It marks my first trip to Wisconsin (check that off my bucket list!) and I’m looking forward to meeting for the first time a few long-distance friends from Facebook.

St. Raphael and St. Christopher, pray for us as we journey into the frozen north.

Is there a patron saint for warm weather?
