2011 CMN Trade Show!

Erin and I travelled to Valley Forge, Pennsylvania to attend the 15th Annual Catholic Marketing Network Convention from August 2-5, 2011.  It was a joy to spread the great news that Fr. Carl Schulte's book on the life of Sr. Marie will be released this coming Fall by St. Benedict Press/ TAN Books.  

 Here is our table at the St. Benedict /TAN booth.  God placed us in a great spot and the attendees from book stores all over the country passed us as they entered the Trade Show.  Sr. Marie has so many new friends now all with a prayer card (or a bunch of them!)  As we told the story of Sr. Marie and Mary's House in Ephesus with all the hope it holds for peace between the different families of God, they were visibly touched.  Their hearts were moved.  Their interest was peaked.  They have become new ambassadors for Sr. Marie.  Soon bookstores from coast to coast will be carrying her story as told by Fr. Carl.   We thank God for this opportunity and ask Him to continue to bless the Cause for Sr. Marie.
