What’s In A Name?

Recently, I’ve learned that three different young couples I know, two of whom I married, are expecting their first child.  Early Saturday morning, other friends of mine just became grandparents for the first time.  Of course, a big part of this “birthing process” is the awesome responsibility of naming their children. I’m of the mind that God is actually the one who names each of us, it is just up to the parents to figure out what this “divine handle” is.  A similar discussion took place during the recent confirmation season, when some of the […]

Wyoming Catholic College

Earlier this week I spent the day in Lander, Wyoming for a full day Board of Directors meeting for the Wyoming Catholic College.  It was a very productive day, as well as enjoyable.  The board is made up of a very dedicated group of individuals who are committed to a very unique endeavor in the world of higher, Catholic Education.

A liberal arts degree that uses the Great Books to offer the very best […]

In this diocese, […]


Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ.  Our Church is built upon this presence of Christ in the Eucharist.  We renew again our faith in this mysterious but true presence of Christ in the Eucharistic elements of bread and wine which become His Body and Blood.  It is this presence of Christ in the Church and all its members that make the Church at once both Divine and human.  For us as the individual members as well as the corporate Body of Christ, the Church, to be all we […]
