All the married ladies are together again for the 1st episode of the 2nd year of our  "experiment" - and if Joanne sounds and/or looks a little funny it's because she's been quite under the weather for the past week.  That doesn't seem to even slow her or the others down one bit as they dive into discussions on the homilies for the 1st Sunday of Advent, Cycle B edition - along with the timely topics of Advent rituals, altar servers of both genders and the state of Faith Formation today. Nothing like getting everyone riled up at the beginning of a new liturgical year! Grab a cup of your favorite seasonal brew and join us for a discussion no one will dare call boring!

Got feedback? We'd love some (especially after this episode)! Add YOUR voice to our podcast and your feedback can be the LAST WORD on last week's Word as well as your take on any of our other topics. There are three ways you can do this:

  • drop us an email at
  • call us using the feedback line at 774-955-0659
  • jot down your thoughts in the comment box on our website.

We always love to hear what's happening on your side of the world - Thanks!
