Shalom Place has a new look that I invite you to explore.

Click on this link to listen to a great homily by Fr. Charles Bouchard O.P. a former class mate of mine. He explores the issue of accepting change in our lives.

    • Clarice Flagel‘s son in law Mark has converted a talk she gave that you will love. This dear friend of mine continues to share her faith and love even as she watches us all from her perch in heaven.
    • A video called Dominican Impact is a very well done view of the community I studied with when getting my masters in Theology. Fr. Goergen, a dear friend, and Fr. Charles Bouchard a former classmate are featured in it. Now located in St. Louis, they are obviously thriving there.
    • Take a look as the words of a wisdom grandmother Melissa Musick Nussbaum at her site. Her wisdom continues to amaze me over the years. Mmy Lifeelissa is a column writer for the NCR.
    • What should a community do with its unused land? Plant food, of course. With energy and humor, Pam Warhurst tells at the TEDSalon the story of how she and a growing team of volunteers came together to turn plots of unused land into communal vegetable gardens, and to change the narrative of food in their community. Pam Warhurst cofounded Incredible Edible, an initiative in Todmorden, England dedicated to growing food locally by planting on unused land throughout the community.
