April Speaking Engagements

I’m looking forward to a month of speaking and sharing with different audiences of people.

In April, I’ll be leading two Confirmation Retreats, speaking at a high school retreat, emceeing for a parish fundraising event, and emceeing my 15th wedding reception.

I am most grateful for the trust of those who invited me and their communities.
