Joan Weber presents to priests, catechists and others on using the Bible.
Connecting families with the Bible — 

The Center for Ministry Development held a workshop May 20 at St. Francis of Assisi Church in West Des Moines focusing on how parishes can aid families in using the Bible. Presenter Joan Weber said this could mean using Bible stories for bedtime stories for little children, or offering a prayer for parents to use when a child looses a tooth. She recommended prayer and the Bible be connected with all of those major milestones in a family's life.
