“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 August edition of Our Faith…Our Diocese:
Catholic Television was there when Bishop Bambera officially dedicated and blessed St. Francis Commons in Scranton, a new transitional housing facility for homeless veterans.
We’ll see how St. John the Baptist in Larksville and Our Lady Queen of Peace in Brodheadsville are just two of many parishes that are taking advantage of new adult formation programs being offered thru the Diocesan Office for Parish Life.
Fr. Rick Frechette, C.P. one of the guest preachers during this year’s Solemn Novena to St. Ann talks with us about his nearly 30 years of service in Haiti as both a priest and as a physician.
And Fr. Don Williams, Diocesan Director of Vocations, tells us how this year’s Vocations Golf Classic turned out to be the most successful one yet in helping raise funds for the ongoing formation of our seminarians.
