Parish Table Talk
• NEW Pastoral Letter from Archbishop Lori: In the last edition of Mission Matters, we mentioned a message that Archbishop Lori had for the faithful. That message is in his new pastoral letter entitled: The Enduring Power of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s Principles of Nonviolence. The letter, along with a wealth of resources for pastors and pastoral leaders, can be found on the Archdiocesan website. Share the Archbishop’s important pastoral letter in your parish communities. Join the discussion.
• Corrie Marie’s First Album: Guess what?! Our very own young adult music ministry leader, Corrie Marie is getting ready to drop her first album! Corrie Marie has led worship nights throughout the Archdiocese of Baltimore, most recently with the Bon Secours Young Adult Acoustic Lent. If you are able, please show your support by placing a preorder or invite her in to lead an evening of praise and worship for your young adult ministry. It is great to see local talent being shared through ministry and service (Promotional flyer).
