Extraordinary Synod on the Family
October 5-19, 2014
Between October 5 -19, 2014 an extraordinary Synod of Catholic Bishops will gather in Rome to prayerfully consider the Pastoral Challenges facing the Family and discern the best way forward.
It is called an extraordinary Synod for good reason. The last of its kind occurred in 1980. It was called by St John Paul II and led to the promulgation of the prophetic and powerful 1981 apostolic exhortation entitled The Role of the Christian Family in the Modern World, (Familiaris Consortio).
The Bishops and other lay participants in this extraordinary Synod were selected by Pope Francis for their ability to contribute to what the Church knows is a major pastoral concern. There is a literal assault on marriage and the family.
However, this is not a defensive synod. Nor is it a time when the Church will change her teaching to somehow accommodate the contemporary culture. The Church is the seed of a new culture.
Rather, in this Synod, the Church is considering the family in the pastoral and missionary context of the hour. This Synod is an opportunity for the Church, as mother and teacher, to reaffirm the unchangeable truth that marriage between one man and one woman is intended for life, to be open to life and to be formative of family.
And that the family, which is the first cell of both the Church, the Body of Christ, and of all civil society, is God's plan for the whole human race. Finally, that the Christian vision of marriage and family paves the path to a future of hope. PLEASE PRAY FOR THE INSPIRATION OF THIS SYNOD ON THE FAMILY THROUGHOUT ITS GATHERING AND DELIBERATIONS!
Archdiocese of Regina Annual Appeal 2014
Your gift to the Archdiocesan Annual Appeal assists in building the Kingdom through mission work, adult and youth education and social outreach to the poor, the isolated and the infirm in our communities. Our financial goal this year is 1.4 million dollars. You are invited to prayerfully consider how your household might help us reach this goal and carry on our Christian mission. It is easy for us to take credit for the richness of our lives--to see our time, talents and treasures as things we have built, created and earned for ourselves. The life of Christian stewardship challenges us to see God, and not ourselves, as the true source of all we have and to see these things not as commodities we've earned to do with as we choose, but as gifts we've been given to fulfill God's own purpose. The Archdiocesan Annual Appeal invites us to make Christian stewardship an integral part of our daily lives, making a return to God in proportion to what we have been given. To date Holy Trinity has raised $7,940 of its $62,300 goal.
