Recognition

Nihil obstat: Rev. George Welzbacher, Censor librorum, Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis

Imprimatur: Most Rev. John C. Nienstedt, Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis

“Don’t let the title of this book fool you. Its purpose is a most serious one – the communication of the timeless truths of our Catholic Faith using images that are compelling to the man or woman of today. Such methods have been with us since the very beginning, ever since Truth made flesh picked up the mustard seed and unveiled to his listeners the power of the grain of wheat. It is my hope and my prayer that many souls will come into contact with this greatest of teachers, Jesus Christ, through the use, study and enjoyment of ‘The Catechism of Hockey.’

The Most Reverernd John C. Neinstedt, Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis

“Miss Bormes’ new book, ‘The Catechism of Hockey,’ offers an insightful and unique way of helping readers to better understand their faith. As a bishop and a hockey player, I am grateful for this contribution which I pray will be an effective tool in helping people to grow in a deeper appreciation for the Catholic Faith by viewing it through the lens of the game of hockey.”

Most Reverend Thomas John Paprocki, Bishop of Springfield in Illinois

“Life is hockey? Maybe. The path to greatness is the same for both the NHL and your soul and this book will lead you there.”

Brian Bonin,1996 Hobey Baker Award Winner

“This book is enjoyable and should be an inspiration to those involved in the game of hockey.  Herbie would have been humbled by bringing hockey into the realm of spirituality.”

Patti Brooks, wife of the late Herb Brooks, 1980 USA Men’s Olympic Hockey Team Coach
