  1. Thank you for the encouraging material. I am using it with my team and finding more competence and enthusiasm as a result. Please pass along a greeting to Sr. Miriam Malone. I had the privilege of participating in an RCIA Director program with her back in the 1980’s in Los Angeles. Sr. Miriam made a lasting impression on me.
