“Thanks to the new communications media, the Lord can walk the streets of your cities and, stopping before the threshold of our homes and our hearts, say once more: ‘Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will enter his house and dine with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:20 Pope Benedict XVI
In the May edition of Our Faith…Our Diocese:
We’ll talk with members of the RCIA team from St. John the Baptist parish in Larksville, one of many parishes that will be participating in a special conference to help parishes across our Diocese revitalize the RCIA process.
We’ll take you to Fatima Renewal Center in Dalton to look at a couple of upcoming youth retreats including the International Student Leadership Institute and Up & Over. The goal of both these retreats is to help young people come to a deeper appreciation of their Catholic faith.
We’ll also see how Catholic teens from around our Diocese will be taking part in two major youth rallies later this year including the annual “Light the Fire” youth rally at Misericordia University and the National Catholic Youth Conference.
And we’ll talk with one of many couples who will be attending the annual celebration of the Wedding Anniversary Mass at St. Peter’s Cathedral on June 16th.
