Why Catholic?

Posted by Ann Cubillas

Why Catholic?

“Why Catholic?” a program developed by Renew International, begins this month in most of the parishes of the archdiocese. This program responds to the need for better adult formation identified during our second archdiocesan Synod.

“Why Catholic?” is based on the four “pillars” of the Catechism of the Catholic Church: the creed, the sacraments, the life of faith and the prayer of the believer. “Why Catholic?” promises — in small group meetings among parishioners — not only to help communicate the content of our faith but also to facilitate a deeper encounter with Christ present “where ever two or three are gathered in his name.”
Our fathers kept the faith — in spite of the persecutions they faced; our fathers passed on the faith to us — often overcoming many obstacles to do so. “Why Catholic?” by giving “an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope….” (1 Peter 3:15), will help make those who take part more “religiously literate” and thus better able to keep it as well as to pass it on.
“Faith of our fathers, we will strive
to win all nations unto thee;
And through the truth that comes from God,
We all shall then be truly free.”

LETTER OF POPE FRANCIS
TO FAMILIES

 

Dear families,

With this letter, I wish, as it were, to come into your homes to speak about an event which will take place at the Vatican this coming October. It is the Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, which is being convened to discuss the theme of “pastoral challenges to the family in the context of evangelization”. Indeed, in our day the Church is called to proclaim the Gospel by confronting the new and urgent pastoral needs facing the family.

Why I should Attend the 56th Annual MACCW Convention

Posted by Josephine Gilbert

By: Waiting For The Word

My Dear Council Sisters,

Greetings to you all and I wish you a hopeful Easter. We have 14 days, to be exact, until our convention. The MACCW Board and the Monroe District Ladies have been working hard to get all our ducks in a row. Now that the time is getting closer, the registrant numbers should be a lot greater than we have right now. In case you are still deciding on whether you should attend, here are some reasons.
