Just A Catholic Dad
I'm a father in my forties with a beautiful 7 year old daughter. I'm a returned Catholic, my daughter is a baptised Catholic, and I'm married to a wonderful woman who is, well, not a Catholic, nor did she have a religious upbringing. This presents some challenges! This is my life as a father, a Catholic and an air traffic controller.
 

 

An autumn of two halves and Caitie starts her First Holy Communion Journey.

 

This week’s 60 Second Saint is St John of God

Here's episode 2. It’s still a work in progress, and I’m still trying to figure where I’m going with it, how to work the levels, how to blether less and generally how to put the structure together, how to breathe...... so if you have any (constructive) advice, I’d love to hear it.  Anyway, in this JACD, it’s about Easter and peeping through lecterns, a rant about the ‘abuse crisis’, Snow White and RATS!!  Eeeek – literally.

I promised a few websites to try to shed light on the current situation regarding the abuse crisis, or to use as springboards for further information and here they are:
