Encounters on the Journey

Moments of grace, beauty and inspiration discovered in plain sight

Here in the diocesan Communications Office we are blessed with regular opportunities to meet Catholics in the region, visit parishes and schools, and cover or participate in special events. Sometimes those experiences take unexpected turns and lead to profound encounters or a much-needed dose of humor or split-second flashes of hope and joy. Throughout our work week, we’ll use this blog to post the grace-filled glimpses that catch our eye and capture our heart but don’t quite make the headlines of the day.
