I've just volunteered to try and turn the closet-full-of-books-and-other-stuff into an actual lending library. My plan is to use LibraryThing to create a catalog. We're also planning to get a cart so that a selection of books can be available as people are leaving Mass and/or at coffee-and-donuts. (I'm also secretly planning to reduce my personal collection by passing a few cartons on to the parish!)
Thanks for posting the compliment on my message board, I really appreciate it. Sorry it took me so long to reply, you probably don't even remember me anymore lol. Anyhow though, I wanted to say I've enjoyed reading your responses in various threads also. Take care, you are in my prayers.
I'm much further west than Dover/Rochester (Amherst/Milford) but I do know that area a little. And both my parents' families were from Maine - Sandy Point (near Belfast) and Castine. What part of Maine are you in?
The Tiber Swim Team is a self-selected group of converts to the Catholic Church - it started way before I signed on here. There's no official "registration" or anything, people just choose to put it into their signature. A few days ago I suggested that those of us who are converts should commit to praying for the many RCIA candidates and catechumens represented here, which lead a CAF veteran to start a "group" and another to start a "forum." I'm not enough of a techie to know the difference . . . The reference is to the Tiber River, outside of Rome - back in the 1900s some well-known converts from Anglicanism referred to their conversions as "crossing the Tiber."
Welcome back to the Church!! I hope it's a great homecoming.
