Sharing our faith begins with a personal conversion, a change of heart. It means letting our hearts be seized and saturated by the Gospel (Pope Paul VI). This turning toward Christ can bring about an enthusiasm to live more openly and freely, as Jesus did.
The One Faith, One Family, One Future in Christ campaign is all about people, and how we will equip and strengthen parishes and schools to create a culture of evangelization for welcoming people with a joyful spirit.
“Our future in Christ is dependent on our ability, our willingness and our steadfastness in bringing the joy of the Gospel to everyone we meet.”
Society is in great need of the values we share as Catholics – promoting human dignity, respect for life, the importance of marriage and family, and the advancement of the Gospel. Our future in Christ is dependent on our ability, our willingness and our steadfastness in bringing the joy of the Gospel to everyone we meet.
We pray for the intercession of the Holy Spirit in our efforts to reach people, to influence their lives, and to draw them into our family of faith and a joyous future in Christ.
Sincerely yours in Jesus, the Lord of Life,
Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann
