My family and I recently visited my sister in Omaha, Nebraska, and attended Mass at her parish, St. Patrick Catholic Church in Gretna. I was delighted to see a strong visual emphasis on The Year of Faith throughout the church.
The parish also communally prays the “Increase our Faith” prayer before dismissal at every Mass.
I would think it would be awfully difficult for the Average Joe and Jane Catholic in the pew at this parish to remain unaware about the Year of Faith. And to really kick off this Year of Faith, this parish is hosting Jeff Cavins and his “Matthew in a Day” seminar on November 17.
Way to go, St. Patrick in Gretna! I’m glad my sis and her soon-to-be husband call you home. So impressed with your Year of Faith initiatives, I’ll give you a pass on clapping after Mass … just this once!
Now I’m curious. What Year of Faith promotions (if any) are you seeing from the parishes in your area?
