IS GOD CALLING YOU TO BE A CATHOLIC?

Have you been searching for a deeper meaning in your life? Is something missing? Do you need a new direction for your life’s journey? Does your life seem unsettled? Have you thought about the fact that God may be nudging you to enter into a process and become a Catholic?  To find an answer to these questions, you might want to consider entering into the “Process of Christian Initiation.”  This process formally begins on Monday, Oct. 1 at 6:30 pm in the Holy Name Hall.  Questions?  Call Fr. Dennis.

Who is this process for?
  If you have never been baptized, or were baptized in another religion other than Catholic or was baptized Catholic and did not receive any other sacraments, then this is the process for you.

MINISTRY TO PERSONS WITH HIV/AIDS

For almost 20 years, Christ the Light of the World Parish has ministered to persons with HIV/AIDS as a “Aids Care Team” as part of our parishes Caring Ministry.  Over the years, the face of this disease, its treatments and our caring outreach has changed dramatically.  Recently, Fr. Dennis met with the Director of the Pgh. Aids task force, Chuck Christan and the community outreach director, Shennod Moore to discuss how we might work together to intensify a spiritual component of care for persons with HIV/AIDS in a faith based environment, as well as learning and discussing how we could help and be supportive of one another. All care team members, as well as those interested in being part of this ministry or anyone else is invited to an informational, educational gathering on Sunday, September 9 at 1:00 pm in the Holy Name Hall.
