Vos Estis lux Mundi
In more than 30 years of ministry in the Diocese, Sister Sara Kane and Sister Linda Nicholson moved from Catholic school classrooms to the principal’s office to diocesan leadership to pioneering new ministries.
People have been calling the Ministry Formation Institute and asking if the Introduction to CMFP course will be held this year, and the answer is YES!
The Lovers of the Holy Cross community of religious sisters, who have a presence in our Diocese, have offered their hands and hearts by sewing cloth masks!
A Mass of Resurrection was celebrated by Bishop Barnes to celebrate the lives of those in our Diocese called to eternal rest during these recent weeks of pandemic. Because of public gathering restrictions these brothers and sisters were unable to receive a Catholic funeral Mass. We will now come together as a community of faith to remember them. You can view the Mass here
The healthcare ministry of our Church continues even in this time of pandemic. Witness Father Edmund Afagbegee, SVD, Chaplain at St. Bernardine Medical Center. No longer allowed in the hospital rooms, he led a procession through the halls of the hospital, sprinkling holy water on the doors of the rooms, and carrying the Blessed Sacrament. Our faith lives!
