Yaconellis Move to Wales



The Diocese of St. Asaph within the Church in Wales has invited me to be a Teacher in Residence beginning February 15, 2016 through August 15, 2016. I will work to help train and establish a number of community storytelling projects similar to The Hearth here in the United States. In addition to the community storytelling training I will work to help develop a youth ministry training program and do some spiritual formation work with local priests. I am grateful for this new adventure and eager to learn from the Welsh people who have a rich and diverse bardic and Christian tradition.




Under The Moon and Stars


Old family friend, writer and artist Jim Hancock made a wee video of a story I told about a rite of passage I went through at the age of thirteen. Take a look. You can purchase it for $2. Link is here.
