We have the highest number of children in poverty. Poverty is not only an economic condition; there are sisters and brothers who are experiencing spiritual, physical, and mental poverty … We must be a church that goes out into the world and meets the poor ... not from the top down, but the bottom up."
Bishop Daniel Gutiérrez
1 day, 1 idea, 5 churches
During the Diocesan Convention, the Bishop discussed living fearlessly in Christ. Next year, we will focus on people and churches who are “going to the deep” to address the issue of poverty. (If we don’t know what you are doing - small or large – let us know.)
The 5 Sacred Days (see below) are a step towards increasing collaboration between churches and spreading the Gospel. We are asking churches to work together on at least one of the 5 days and incorporate a message of God into what you do. We know that most of you are already doing work – that is a GREAT! Can you involve 5 other churches in to help you? We will provide all the marketing assistance you need (posts, posters, outreach to media, etc.)
Your dean is aware of each of these days and may be planning something or looking for ideas. Please let your dean or us know which day you want to do. We have ideas for all of these if you need our assistance.
Here is a list of what is planned. We will continue to update the list.
Questions? Here are some we have already answered. Let us know if you have more.
