Keep us in prayer this weekend as we speak to a group of engaged couples at the Diocesan Marriage Preparation Course.

Thanks to all who commented on last week’s Quick Takes regarding popular names of 1871-1880. The winner of the book was Amy and she properly guessed two of the names. (The top five girls’ names in that time period were: Mary, Ann, Elizabeth, Emily and Ada.)

  2. Ellen,

    “790,000 characters (letters that is, not actual story characters!)” That made me smile!

    Happy Birthday James!

    I enjoyed Dana’s article too. Also, your book review for “Fallen Men”, though I can’t decide whether to buy and read it, or not!

    God bless.
