Sharing the faith is a simple as sharing the story of our happiness, the cause for our joy, the reason for our hope! Although it’s simple, it’s not always easy! I love how this priest lays it right out in his email signature!!
This is a re-post from a couple of years ago – and since we’re about to enter our second pandemic Christmas, I thought it was time to revisit hospitality! Many parishes had a reservation system last year because they were limiting seating due to local social distancing regulations. Some of you might be doing that again this year. However most parishes I’m speaking to are back to regular capacity with about 60 to 85 percent of parishioners returning to Mass.
I’m sure you’ve heard about the Bishop’s approving a plan for a three-year National Eucharistic Revival by now (read more here). A need for a deeper reflection and acceptance of The Real Presence has been needed for quite some time. Surveys show that even the most committed Catholics (those who attend Mass each week) do not all believe that Jesus is really, truly present in the Eucharist at Mass.
