Help Spread the FAITH - September 2019
Parish bulletin announcement
New research about Americans and religion reveals that only 31% of self-described Catholics believe that the bread and wine used for communion are truly the body and blood of Jesus Christ. This statistic is alarming. It is more important than ever that the Diocese of Lansing provide Catholic content in parishioners’ homes to help them understand their Catholic faith.
The Help Spread the FAITH Appeal is your chance to participate in this crucial mission.
Bishop Boyea believes that FAITH is a crucial part of our evangelization plan. FAITH magazine is sent to your home and every Catholic home each month by our parishes and diocese. In addition to FAITH magazine and the online version at faithmag.com, our diocese evangelizes with our weekly television Mass, the U.S. bishops’ national efforts and local parish initiatives.
FAITH Magazine is designed to help readers grow as disciples of Jesus and go out to evangelize. Every issue includes:
- Compelling stories of Christian witness
- Catholic formation and educational articles
- Advice for daily living with columns on marriage, parenting, work life, and more
- Diocesan information and news from a Catholic perspective
Faithmag.com is the digital home to all FAITH magazine content. It enables you to evangelize using content from the magazine. You can:
- Find articles from current and past issues of FAITH
- Learn about your Catholic faith so that you can explain it to others
- Email FAITH content to your family and friends
- Share FAITH content on your social media pages
The Television Outreach Mass gives homebound Catholics a way to participate in the Mass each week. It also reaches those who have drifted from the practice of the faith, and those who want to learn more about it by watching the Mass on television.
Your gift to Help Spread the FAITH supports our ability to provide these important evangelization tools, as well as the U.S. bishops’ national evangelization efforts.
By supporting the Help Spread the FAITH Appeal, you will answer Christ’s call to share the Gospel message by using the powerful tools of today’s media.
Thank you, in advance, for your help to spread the FAITH!
