“The Church needs to be concerned for, and present in, the world of communication, in order to dialogue with people today and to help them encounter Christ.”
– Pope Francis
In the November edition of Our Faith…Our Diocese, we’ll see how see volunteers from Wells Fargo, the Catholic Youth Center and Misericordia University came together recently to build new playgrounds for the CYC.
We’ll sit down with Mary Lou Burne and Sr. Ann Walsh, I.H.M. to see how the Family to Family program and annual Thanksgiving dinner at the Scranton Cultural Center will once again provide the elderly, lonely and families in need with a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.
Fr. Greg Reichlen, assistant pastor at St. John the Evangelist parish in Honesdale tells us how the parish’s youth group is hosting a special day of prayer and fellowship for the family known as “God and Your Family.”
