OREMUS COMMUNICATIONS SEPTEMBER 2018 NEWSLETTER
Hello everyone. We are very happy with the results of the World Meeting of Families (WMF) which took place last month in Dublin, Ireland. The meetings, gatherings and symposiums all reflect the importance of family life in the growth formation of all of us. The final Mass, celebrated by Pope Francis on Sunday, August 26th with all the thousands in attendance at the closing of the WMF, served as a microcosm for all of us, the faithful, dedicated to witnessing and evangelizing the “Good News”.
The month of September promises to continue this emphasis on witnessing and evangelizing on Sunday September16, 2018 when the Universal Church celebrates Catechetical Sunday. Quoting the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops on their websites ( usccb.org
): “The 2018 theme will be ‘Enlisting Witnesses for Jesus Christ’. Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of baptism, and in handing on the faith and being a witness to the gospel. “
Quoting further on the same website, Bishop Robert Barron, Chairman of the Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis (USCCB) further stated: “We are living in a secularized society which continues to squeeze Christianity to the margins. We are losing baptized Catholics at an alarming rate…According to Pugh Research, nearly 1 in 4 Hispanic Adults are now former Catholics, many of whom identify themselves as people with no religious affiliation…Many parents are sadden to report their children are leaving the church even after preparing for and celebrating initiation sacraments and after years of Catholic school or parish religious classes. Figures for Baptism, Church weddings, and weekly Mass attendance are down…”
Oremus Communications supports this call to action by the Bishops, and will pray for its success throughout September. Accordingly, we have invited Dr. Antone Raymundo to be our guest on the Oremus Communications Family Rosary Program (OCFRP) on Friday, September 21st at noon EST.
