Catholic writers meet for lunch in Massachusetts

Two Saturdays ago, at the suggestion of Heidi Hess Saxton, my former editor of Canticle Magazine, a xolumnist at Catholic Mom, and founder of the Extraordinary Moms Network, I had a Catholic writer's luncheon. It was a blast!

I had the pleasure of meet in two Catholic authors whose columns I admire on Catholic Mom: Patrice Fragnant-McArthur who blogs at Spiritual Woman(next to me) and Pat Gohn, who blogs at Write In Between and has started up a podcast called Among Women. Pat Gohn has a background in radio, and worked on Long Island, in two stations close to where I grew up, but transferred to Boston in the 1990's.

We discussed their Master's degrees in Theology (I am considering this but time and finances are limited) being a Catholic writer, and how we hope that our writing help to evangelize the culture. We spent two hours together, and the time flew by. I hope we can get together again sometime soon.

We recorded a podcast right there in 99 Restaurant near Worcester, MA. When it airs, I'll be linking to it here.

Wasn't that a fun time?! Thanks for posting our picture -- thank God that ONE of us had the good sense and foresight to bring a camera! Way to go, L.!

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to sharing that conversation with your readers on the "Among Women" podcast in the next few weeks... in the meantime, perhaps your readers would like to check out the three episodes that are already available up at iTunes or at Also, find a link on Facebook!

That reminds me to return to Pat's excellent blog, and I will also check out Patrice's! It is such a blessing to be among like-minded women and I'm glad you were able to get together like that!

Patrice Fagnant-MacArthur said...

Thanks, Leticia! It was a great time!

Way to go, ladies! I only wish Michigan wasn't so FAR from you all. Would love to have been there, too!

Next time you're near Detroit, I'm buying!
