Autumn 2014

Greetings from Cricket and Jerry!
We have trips to tell about but they have been amidst our selling our home of nearly 25 years in the Atlanta area! We are relocating and not yet sure where our base of operations will be; "taking nothing for the journey" is such a challenge! We will be announcing our new location(s) soon!

We were blessed to give a retreat to the prayer teams for the Archdiocese of Atlanta's Annual Eucharistic Congress this summer.
 Cricket has given a number of talks, highlighted by her Releasing Our Trials to God presentation for the Secular Franciscan fraternity in Chicago.
This was held at Mayslake Retreat center, which was the former Peabody mansion, and then a Franciscan Friary for many years.

We put together a combination of Cricket's book on this with some of Jerry's music and released it with an audio book read by Cricket. We intend to do more of this in years to come. Watch for announcements!

Jerry then flew to give a concert and help with the Memorial at the ARG in Black Mountain, NC. Meanwhile Cricket visited with our daughter Talia who sings professionally in the Chicago and NY areas.

Jerry gave a talk on Balance in a crazy busy world at St. Meinrad Archabbey and School of Theology this summer.

Jerry has also been completing his dissertation for a Doctorate in Ministry which involves best practices for teaching Catechetics. This project will be published and be included in a workshop we are developing for parish and Catholic school teachers!

God Bless you and yours, jerry and cricket
