Q: Why do Catholics sit in the back row? A: Because there are no pews in the parking lot! In the back row at tonight's "Grace Uncorked" event at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton parish was a Who's Who in national Catholic media and outreach. Jason and Crystalina Evert of "The Chastity Project" (chastity.com); David and Tierney Abel (smiling toward the camera) of "Stewardship: A Mission of Faith" (stewardshipmission.com); Tony Mullen (striped shirt)of "MyConsecration.org"; Mark Mittendorf (beige jacket), President of Lighthouse Catholic Media (lighthousecatholicmedia.org). With them was Monsignor George Grima from Malta (blue shirt), who directs a missionary outreach serving over 40,000 orphaned and abandoned children in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Brazil, and who will be speaking at all Masses this weekend at the parish. Oh, and Rob Longo from Stewardship Mission seemed to enjoy the snacks.
