“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 June edition of Our Faith…Our Diocese…
We’ll see how the Office for Parish Life is sponsoring a special summer Catechist Camp June 22-27, 2015 at Marywood University. The camp is a formation program for catechists and school teachers from around the Diocese.
Fr. Don Williams, Diocesan Vocation Director introduces us to a different type of summer camp known as Quo Vadis which will take place at Misericordia University from June 28th to July 1st. Quo Vadis Days 2015 is a camp for young Catholic men in High School who want to deepen their faith, learn more about all vocations and better discern God’s call in their lives.
Once again couples from around the Diocese of Scranton will be gathering with Bishop Bambera at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Scranton to take part in the annual celebration of the Wedding Anniversary Liturgy.
We’ll discuss the upcoming Vocations Golf Classic which will be taking place at the Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club on July 13, 2015 and see how this tournament benefits those young men in our Diocese who are answering God’s call to the priesthood.
And we’ll look at this year’s Catholic Charismatic Renewal Conference slated for the weekend of July 31st – August 2nd at the University of Scranton. A weekend filled with prayer, music and fellowship, the theme of this year’s conference is “Unity in Diversity”.
