Eden, Wis. couple on World Meeting of Families panel Friday Sept 25th

Gina Loehr explained at the Milwaukee Catholic Herald how a book she wrote lead to an invitation from Archbishop Charles J. Chaput of Philadlephia.
"Because of the research I had done about the Holy Father for my book, 'Saint Francis, Pope Francis: A Common Vision, they [conference organizers] proposed that I speak on a panel about Pope Francis and the family. The congress organizers asked that Joe and I speak together as a couple."
That's Joseph Loehr, her husband. The Herald notes the Loehrs are
"parents of five children, [and] are members of Shepherd of the Hills Parish, Eden. Joseph is partner-owner of Loehr Dairy, LLC, a 700-acre dairy farm that has been in his family for 130 years and Gina is an instructor of theology at Marian University of Wisconsin."
(Eden is in rural Fond du Lac County, northwest of Milwaukee.)

Mrs. Loehr suggests reading Love is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive [pdf 127 pages].

"This 'preparatory catechesis' outlines 10 topics that affect families, laying the groundwork for the sessions that will be going on at the congress."
Here is the website of the World Meeting of Families.

P.S. Live Streaming of the conference will be available.
