Mimi Marrocco came to Faith Connections' Theology on Tap on June 14, 2006, and made a wonderful case for being ourselves during the 70% of our lives that we spend during our waking lives at work.

It was with great joy and renewed strength that on May 6, 2006, I attended our CSJ Associates Commitment Day retreat under the direction of Sister Anne Lemire and the planning committee.
  
Three new candidates, Helen Hicks, Nilda Laurino, and Dorothy Ormesher, made their first commitment. We welcomed them to the CSJ Associates with a liturgy and commitment ceremony followed by dinner.

Living your Faith in a Challenging World

Neil MacCarthy told three funny, inspiring, stories about living your faith now to the young people overflowing the room at Theology on Tap on May 31 at the Duke of York pub.
