May God be with you! 
Theology on Tap finale was awesome!! Thank you to everyone who came out. We had a blast and loved seeing your smiling faces, really! Also, It’s not over! 
Although it will look a little different this year as we try hard to make sure that we implement Bishop’s vision for our diocese through – Catechesis, Evangelization, and Faith in Action – TOT’s are getting queued up as we speak. We look forward to continuing to connect with you and your friends in the name of our good and gracious God. We will continue to do our best to serve your needs and journey with you this year. Thank you for your faithfulness to the Church and our Lord as some have left. You are the good people of God and our Father in Heaven loves you deeply, friends.
Also, Check out Drew’s book at the bottom with the resources! 😊
Estamos Juntos (we are in this together)
Praying for you all,

Book: Healing of a Restless Heart

Kudos to our director, Andrew Isbell, who just published his book Healing of a Restless Heart! "This story about Andrew is the story of Jesus. His story is really all of ours – or at least many of ours. He is being healed by God the Father as he is being hurt by the sin of the world." Read more at Restless Heart.

A New Platform Bringing Depth to Your Feed

If you’re looking for an account to follow that can actually make you a better person, we have a new recommendation. Real + True is a new platform that caught our eye this week because it shares insights from our faith tradition in a way that is worthy of the high standards our generation has for digital media. 

The Pope Video

An Environmentally Sustainable Lifestyle: Let us pray that we all will make courageous choices, the choices necessary for a simple and environmentally sustainable lifestyle, taking inspiration from our young people who are resolutely committed to this... This is why they want to change what they will inherit at a time when we will no longer be here.”
