CHURCH IN LATIN AMERICA


CHURCH IN LATIN AMERICA

In rural Peru, like in many other countries, opportunities for the faithful to celebrate even the basic rituals of our Catholic faith are often few and far between. Frequently, children cannot receive the sacraments of initiation, and Mass cannot be held regularly. Without missionaries and catechist, the people living there cannot learn about, experience and share the beauty of our Catholic way of life.

Your support to the Collection for the Church in Latin America has helped the Siervas del Plan de Dios (Servants of the Plan of God) train lay people to become Catholic missionaries and catechists in parishes. The sisters have set up a missionary formation program as a step toward enlivening and sustaining the Catholic faith.

With your help, the sisters bring the love and tenderness of God to these remote areas and have shown people living in Peru the mercy of Christ. For more information on how you can help the Church in Latin America, visit usccb.org/latin-america. Collection on January 13/14, 2018

"BEYOND BELIEF"

Are you interested in better understanding your Catholic Faith and the Church?

Have you ever been confronted or challenged because of your Catholic Faith by someone of no faith, or a different religion or faith?

Do you know someone who has left the Church, and are not sure how to discuss faith and belief with that person?

…..if so, then please join fellow Catholics from the area in a monthly gathering to explore these and other topics. Our meeting will be on Tuesday, January 23 at 7pm, at the rectory of Annunciata.
