Three distinct Pastoral Plan Pathways, created to give focus to the faithful, are being publicly revealed this weekend by Daniel Cardinal DiNardo.
The pathways are part of a comprehensive roadmap designed to move the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston towards a future that embraces a spirituality of communion.
The Galveston-Houston Knights of Columbus Charities will present Daniel Cardinal DiNardo’s fifth annual Shepherd’s Cup Charity Golf Classic benefiting Catholic education, faith formation and St. Mary Seminary on Monday, Oct. 22, at Kingwood Country Club.
As we prepare to celebrate the Year of Faith, which begins on Oct. 11, we are called to renew our personal relationship with Jesus Christ and recommit ourselves to the Church. At the same time, we live in a secular world which seems to have a stronghold on the ability to influence people of all ages. As Catholics living both in the Church and in society, we may want to consider that the most natural setting for evangelization to happen is precisely where so much of our daily lives are lived — at work. Since many of us typically invest half, or more than half, of our entire lives earning a living, why not focus on renewing ourselves, while evangelizing others, in the place sometimes referred to as our “second home."
Summer has come to a close and school sessions have begun. Although the largest gathering of high school youth for the Archdiocese occurred in mid July (the Archdiocesan Youth Conference), the experience was designed to be far reaching beyond the one three-day event.
