Fr. Cathie led online workshops for 50 of our parishes. Rather than just putting a camera in the center aisle to stream worship, she encouraged us to think about translating our worship to take advantage of the strengths of online technology.

Everything she talks about is practical, inexpensive, and encouraging, and her own upbeat personality makes the experience fun.

As I told her afterward, it was "better than I knew to hope for." Strongly recommended.

Very supportive, engaging and thoughtful. I appreciated her kindness to students and passion for sharing the love of Christ as well as tools of digital ministry.
