Vocations Corner
  Father Gregory Galvin, Director of Priestly Vocations Signs of fall’s arrival are popping up everywhere. The leaves are changing colors and cooler air has arrived. Before we know it, we’ll prepare to cook a turkey with all the fixings as we visit our relatives and give thanks to God for our many blessings of faith, family and country. Fall is here, and life has quickened from the slower, more relaxing months of summer. School students and seminarians returned to their studies within the past month. While these changes take place, the Diocese o...

Teaching Children the Art of Joyful Giving
By Mary-Jo McLaughlin Do you recall as a child viewing commercials of famine-stricken children in Africa while watching Saturday morning cartoons? Seeing those pictures, how many of us were compelled to break open the piggy bank and send money to charities hoping to ease the guilt of having more than those hungry children?

The Final Word? Trust Me, Men… It’s Not Us!
By Mark C. McCann Recently, I attended a series of Christian talks on the “Gifts of the Holy Spirit” given at a local Protestant church.

One thing Catholics have is an anchor to the teaching and traditions of the Church that have been passed down t...

OFF TO A GREAT START !
Thanks to a number of parishes and churches, and hard-working pro-life reps, we began our 40 Days For Life campaign with a great turnout. Following the kick-off Vigil Mass at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, prayer warriors were out and about at 12 Case St. early the next morning.

October is Respect Life Month- Read Bishop Cote's Column
Respect Life Month Although we must cherish, protect, and defend human life year-round, the Catholic Church in the United States sets aside each October as Respect Life Month, and the first Sunday of October is observed as Respect Life Sunday. As Catholics, we are called to cherish, defend, and protect those who are most vulnerable, from the beginning of life to its end, and at every point in between. During the month of October, the Church asks us to reflect more deeply on the dignity of every human life.  Bishop Cotes Column from the October Four...
