Patty Schneier @ St. Andrew's

The Butler Humanae Vitae Ministry held a conversion speaker event this past weekend at my parish St. Andrew's in Center Township Butler County. I spent the weekend as the events techie taking care of wiring, mics and the sound systems. The event was fantastic, Patty wound up giving two separate but related talks to the group. The first was her conversion testimony about learning about John Paul II's Theology of the Body and of Humanae Vitae. It was a great talk about the changes to her life, her marrige and her family.

Following Dinner Patty gave a second talk that was being recorded that is in a way best called "Six Years Later". It covers what has happened since the original conversion, and how it has continued to effect her family. Unfortunatly due to the mic not being properly powered we weren't able to get a suitable recording for her, but we all figured that it was for a reason. I personally think Patty will refine the talk even further and make it even more powerful.

All in all the event was fantastic. We had about 105 for mass, and around 120 for the first talk. The NFP promoters dinner had over 50 people including kids, and we had about 40 people return to hear to the second talk. Many thanks to Fr. Salgerg, Patty Schneier, and the BHV team for a great event.
