Mission Matters: May 17, 2016

This week’s “Parish Table Talk”:  The US Supreme Court latest ruling on the Little Sisters of the Poor’s case; Welcoming new Confirmandi to the Archdiocese; Forming Intentional Disciples; Canon Law workshops; Our littlest missionary disciple; plus this Thursday’s blog post.

Watch for this Thursday’s Post: Parish Survey Series #5

Faith Is Not a Smoothie, by Ruth Puls, Director of Catechetical and Pastoral Formation.

  • Forming Intentional Disciples:  This Facebook group is inspired by  Sherry Weddell’s book “Forming Intentional Disciples: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus” and will most likely get you  excited about its proposal to make Evangelization a concrete reality.  Its forum hosts a 24/7 online discussion among like-minded Catholics — lay leaders, seminarians, religious, and clergy — about how to evangelize and make disciples in the 21st century. 
  • Update on Pentecost Confirmations: On May 15, approximately 150 candidates from 38 parishes were confirmed by Archbishop Lori and Monsignor Lloyd E. Aiken at the Cathedral of Mary Our Queen. We take this opportunity to thank all the parish staff and volunteers who work year-round to strengthen our parishioners’ Catholic faith!
  • Welcome, Andrew Coughlin!: Respect Life Consultant and Project Rachel Coordinator, Johanna Coughlin, gave birth last week to a precious baby boy.  Congratulations on the new arrival!
