The Catholic Parish Study Survey results are in.
To the right of this paragraph, you will see two document links. One file is in PDF format and the other is an Excel file. The PDF file is more "readable", but the Excel file has more direct information ... unfortunately it's a little tricky at first to figure out. There are multiple tabs in the documnt and the first tab has instructions. The second tab is an interactive page that allows you to pick the survey question that you would like to see results for, then displays the graph interactively based on your selection.
New Evangelization for the New Millennium Conference
What a joy it is for me to announce an exciting event that North American Martyrs Parish, along with Saint Bernadette Parish, is sponsoring on Saturday November 1st, 2014. The New Evangelization for the New Millennium Conference is a half day event that will feature well known, popular Catholic speakers that will help inspire and strengthen our faith in a time that is increasingly challenging to be a faithful Catholic.
Today, the Church recognizes the need for a new evangelization – a journey of faith, worship, and witness. We are called to renew the spirit of the faithful. However, we are also called to reach out to those who are baptized but have lost a living sense of faith as well as those who have never heard the gospel. Therefore, The New Evangelization for the New Millennium Conference is a great opportunity to renew our spiritual journey and rediscover the joy and trust when we have a relationship with God. Upon finding this new relationship with God, we enthusiastically want to share our faith with others.
The event will begin at 1:00 PM and will end after the Mass which begins at 4:30 PM and will suffice for Sunday obligation. You can register online on this website or register by mail. Register today and bring others with you.
I hope to see you on November 1st, 2014 at the Monroeville Convention Center where we hope to attract two thousand individuals –men and women, young and old- and experience a powerful personal encounter with Jesus Christ!
Peace in Christ,
Father Joseph Luisi
