As I have hinted at in some recent posts, I will be leaving my position in campus/young adult ministry for the Archdiocese of Detroit at the end of this week. I am truly grateful for the past five years at my current position, as well as the prior two years doing campus ministry in Pennsylvania. I have met some wonderful people over these past years, including my future wife! The Lord has provided me many opportunities to do ministry with young adults, and at the same time being ministered to by others. It is funny how the Lord works! I have also been blessed and nourished by the wisdom of many devout ministry people, both lay and religious, both Catholic and Protestant. If I am any better a follower of Christ, it is only because of His grace and the people he has brought into my life.
So, what am I going to be doing in the future? Well, in many ways this has been a year of milestones for me. First off, I completed the S.T.B. degree at Sacred Heart Major Seminary back in May. Secondly, I will be getting married in September. And finally I will be starting a new position as campus minister/freshman scripture teacher at a local Catholic high school. So, as you can see, there is plenty to keep me occupied.
However, I do plan to continue blogging as well! Although I am still working out how to be a "professional" biblioblogger, I have come to enjoy reporting on Catholic Bible releases and all things related to it. There are not many of us on the web who are concerned with quality Catholic bibles, so I hope at the very least, this site continues to provide a place for people to express their likes and dislikes in the Catholic Biblical world. Heck, every once in a while you might get someone like Fr. Fessio to stop by and comment.
So, I thank all of you who have stopped by over the past year. I look forward to discussing with you all the latest news, like the revised NAB, future NRSV releases (perhaps even with cross-references), and the eventual publication of the complete Ignatius Catholic Study Bible.
Praise be Jesus Christ!
