Father Joe Kempf

"If I had one encouragement to anyone working in Religious Education, it would be to pray that not only God works through us, but along the way that God works in us; that we let ourselves be changed by what we're doing."

"...I really felt the Lord was saying 'Open the Scriptures,' and when I did, I opened a Scripture that addressed all my vulnerabilities. It was so clear and so right that I felt like opening them up again, and I opened a second Scripture that was so clear that there was no possible way that I could deny that God was calling me to do this."

"One of the problems we have, of course, is that kids think they graduate from Religious Ed in the 8th grade or so. One of the ways to help end that is to build in processes where those kids are with their parents experiencing lifelong formation so they can see that the whole parish continues to learn."

"Young Adult Ministry Training is really exciting to me because I think it's the most neglected age group.

Sister Katherine Feely

"What inspired me to get into the ministry, really, had to do with exposure to the social teaching of the church. I didn't know it existed, and when I discovered and kind of stumbled on it, it really had a significant impact, and changed the trajectory of my life."
