The first “Sunday of the Word of God” will be held on January 26, 2020. If that date doesn’t work, parishes can move the date to another Sunday. Whenever – and however – this takes place, the point is to connect Sacred Scripture with daily life - and we've got plenty of resources to help, including blessings to be used at home and at church.
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.
