“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 October edition of Our Faith…Our Diocese, we’ll share with you highlights of the Diaconate Formation Mass that was celebrated on September 28th at St. Peter’s Cathedral. We’ll also talk with Msgr. David Bohr about the current class of men in formation for the permanent diaconate. And we’ll introduce you to Dr. Michael Imbrogo, one of several men who will be ordained as permanent deacons in the Fall of 2015.
Fr. Cyril Edwards, pastor of Mary, Mother of God parish in Scranton gives us a preview of a city wide mission that several local parishes will be sponsoring this November. This city wide mission will be led by Rev. Frank DeSiano, C.S.P. from the Paulist Evangelization Ministries.
We’ll meet a local nurse who was witnessed firsthand the horror of abortion. She was so moved by this experience, she decided to produced a video entitled “The Voice of John” as a means of speaking out on behalf of those innocent souls lost to abortion.
And we’ll take you to Our Lady of Victory parish in Tannersville, where the parish’s RENEW program of small group faith sharing is celebrating its 25th anniversary.
