Mr. Rogers has been in the news lately. Though he's been gone for years, his name keeps coming up because the new feature film, starring Tom Hanks, is a hit. Many of you accepted the invitation of The Leadership Institute to see the film last month and many more asked about the article that inspired the movie. Since it's nearing Christmas, we thought we would give you a break from the drone of bad news in the world and offer you the chance to read something uplifting, inspiring, even life-changing.
The Leadership Institute will sponsor a Diocesan Ministry Day on Saturday, March 7, 2020 at All Saints School in Norwalk. More than three dozen topics were suggested. More than two dozen presenters have been invited.
The intended audience is everyone - all those in ministry - any ministry. All are welcome to join us for Mass with Bishop Caggiano at 9 am with music led by one of our workshop presenters, Tony Melendez.
Registration opens in January. For now, save the date.
Now taking reservations: three great pilgrimages for 2020. A young adult pilgrimage to Greece and Turkey to learn more about St. Paul and two one day pilgrimages are available: one to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and another to the Cloisters and Shrine of Mother Cabrini.
We'd also like to share our new poster, 40 Ways To Be This Lent. Oftentimes we are tempted to do more during Lent. For Lent 2020, why not focus on being. Allow Lent 2020 to be a season of emptying, opening, and decluttering of schedules, minds, and hearts to make room for what God has in store for us through the fruits of the Holy Spirit* – which is always immeasurably more.
Rediscovering the Sacrament of Penance
Oftentimes, people find Lent an excellent time to attend confession. If it has been a while since you last attended, or you’re feeling anxious to go, take a look at this video.
