Archdiocese prepares for annual appeal

This year's theme for the Diocesan Services Fund (DSF) is "Faith working through love" (Gal. 5:6). St. Paul writes that we are to bear one another's burdens as an act of discipleship. When we follow Christ's call, it is most appropriate that we give of ourselves through stewardship for we discover that our response brings many gifts to us.

“…they all gather and come to You” (Isaiah 60:4)

We have recently celebrated the beautiful liturgical season of Christmas and are now in the short Ordinary Time and soon our prayers will turn to Lent when we are marked with ashes and challenged to turn away from sin and follow the Gospel. In reflecting back over this season we are reminded that Christ came for all. He traversed old boundaries and divisions and all exclusions fell away. The second reading of Epiphany from the letter of St. Paul to the Ephesians tells us that “the Gentiles are coheirs, members of the same body, and copartners in the promise in Christ Jesus through the Gospel.” The Feast of the Baptism of the Lord reminds us that “he saved us all through the bath of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit …so that we may …become heirs in hope of eternal life.” (Titus 3:5-7)

The Year of Faith saints: Guide us through the year

In the Year of Faith, Pope Benedict XVI has asked us to focus on the lives of the saints so that we may use them as examples in our own faith journey. As a result, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, (USCCB) have picked 10 saints that we should learn more about and how their lives have helped to renew and evangelize the American Church.
