How to Build a Culture of Life
 
Watching the news and reading the headlines, we may feel helpless seeing the heartbreaking lack of respect for human life.  How do we respond?  Changing the culture is a proces of conversion that begins in our own hearts.  When we encounter Christ, experience His love, and deepen our relationship with Him, we become more aware of our own immeasurable worth and that of others.  His unchanging love is a source of our God-given dignity, which, therefore, cannot be taken away.  When someone is facing great trials, we need to walk with them on their journey, intercede for them, and be open to sharing Christ's love however He directs.  We simply need to follow where He leads.

A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM BISHOP LARRY - Pope Francis has announced a Synod of Bishops, which is to take place in October 2023 in Rome. In preparation for that Synod, he has asked every diocese in the world to conduct its own consultation process between October 17, 2021 and February 2022.  I therefore invite all in our diocese to carefully read this Request for Input and to respond as requested.  We look forward to hearing your ideas and input.
