Georgetown Prep Welcomes Maribeth Harper
.  . . And So We Pray: Guidance for Moms with College-Aged Young Adults

Maribeth was the guest speaker October 1 at Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School in D.C. The parents in attendance were most enthusiastic to hear what Praying College Moms have to say to help college students. The faculty even used Maribeth's notes from the talk for a discussion on how best to help girls prepare for college. Blessings all around!
Maribeth's book is available on Amazon, in Catholic Bookstores, and seen here at the University of Dayton Bookstore. 

Celebrating Fall Together
PCM's and loved ones took a moment to relax with music and fellowship and to enjoy the beautiful foliage at Paradise Winery on November 8.  The Beltway Rockers were playing and the laughter was flowing at the indoor back deck.  Thank you to Gamela for organizing this celebration of ordinary grace.
