  • Jesus asked questionsof his apostles! Asking questions is a good thing! Making people think is a good thing!
  • Flocknoteis STILL AWESOME. If you haven't seen the wonderful things they do to help you communicate to your flock (your parish), you owe it to yourself to check it out.
  • We love the idea of having small group bins that hold papers, pens, reminders, etc. Check out these deep colorful bins or these shallow paper-holding bins
