Year of Encounter
In the life of Pope Francis, we see the journey of faith beginning with the simple act of people going out to meet each other, where they are. He calls this “encounter,” and says that because we experience God’s love there, it has the power to heal and transform. During this year of Encounter, Blessed Mother Church will conduct a monthly Eucharistic Holy Hour on Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 PM on June 20, July 18, August 15, September 19, October 17, and November 28. Please join us.

Religious Freedom Week June 22 – 29, 2018
• The theme for this year is Serving Others in God’s Love. Religious freedom is necessary if we are to have the space to continue to serve in areas like education, adoption and foster care, health care, and migration and refugee services. USCCB has produced resources for prayer and action on these issues for each day of the week. We encourage Christians to reflect on the importance of religious freedom so that the Church might have space to carry out her mission of service and mercy. We also invite Christians to pray for our brothers and sisters who face intense persecution in other parts of the world.
• USCCB is providing “Pray – Reflect – Act” one-pagers—one for each day on different religious liberty topics. The materials are meant to inspire people to learn more about religious liberty from a Catholic perspective, to pray about particular issues, and give them the tools to act on what they learn, whether it’s by finding ways for their parish to serve their community or perhaps even by calling their Member of Congress to promote legislation supporting religious liberty
