• Understanding the “nones” in the Church: A new article by the Pew Research Center dives into some interesting opinions on religion by the “nones” we are trying to reach – many of whom are young adult former Catholics.
• A model to us all: As the Vatican prepares to canonize Nobel Prize recipient and icon of the Church, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Catholic Relief Services has published this article about how to apply her Christian teachings and life philosophy to create a more fulfilling existence for ourselves. Check it out and consider sharing it with your congregation!
• A one day men’s conference of inspiration: On Saturday, September 17 at St. Phillip Neri Church in Linthicum Heights, Christians for Ecumenical Action (CEA) will be hosting a one day conference Jesus Christ Matters Today.

• Director’s Breakfast: Parish catechetical leaders from across the Archdiocese of Baltimore gathered last week at St. Michael in Mount Airy to pray, learn a little more about healthy ministry, look at the future plans for the Archdiocese, and enjoy the company of one another. It was a great gathering of great people!
