Like the faithful around the world, the faithful in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston are being called on to give, perform acts of charity and reflect in observance of World Missions Sunday on Oct. 20.
Strengthening the Catholic identity of the Archdiocese’s 60 schools will be a top priority for the next phase of an ambitious six-year plan to overhaul one of the nation’s fastest growing Catholic school systems, local educational leaders said.
From an organization that had a few Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word serving peanut butter and jelly sandwiches out of a tire shop in Galveston to feed the homeless, Our Daily Bread has grown to six staff persons and more than 40 volunteers that daily provide a variety of support services to homeless men and women in a comfortable facility.
Serving in a sanctuary just steps away from the whoosh of the METRO Light Rail, Father Jerry Jung has a ground-level perspective of professionals laboring in the central business district of downtown Houston.
October 6 is Respect Life Sunday. This celebration marks the observance of Respect Life Month, in which Catholics are called in a special way to reflect on the gift of human life, the threats against it and how to protect all persons from conception to natural death.
