Parish Table Talk
• October Calendar – Rosary Congress: October 7-13 is the Rosary Congress, as this year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Our Lady’s message at Fatima. Look for more information and resources on the Archdiocese’s website coming soon. As you plan parish events to celebrate the Congress, here is some information including a description of the Rosary Congress and ideas for parish events. The Basilica has put out a flyer of events they are hosting for the Rosary Congress.
• Online registration for Adult Confirmation: the online registration form is available for the October 8 Adult Confirmation at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen. To register, visit https://www.archbalt.org/adult-confirmation-registration-oct-8-2017/
• Faith in Focus: Bishop Robert Barron through Word on Fire is now offering weekly videos for religion teachers, DREs and youth ministers. The purpose of these videos, called Faith in Focus, is to “reflect on the mysteries of the Catholic Faith, reinvigorate your prayer life, and focus on your own spiritual formation.”
• Sharing the Convocation 2017: Did you enjoy hearing from Helen Alvare at the Catechist Recognition last week? She participated in a panel at the July Convocation in Orlando, with the topic of “Charting the Landscape and Mission Field.” We invite you to take time to reap from the wisdom shared throughout the Convocation by watching the videos shared by the USCCB.
