This Christmas, the Diocese of Buffalo will be airing a media campaign called “Catholics Come Home”. This represents a great opportunity for each of us. We all know a Loved One who no longer practices their faith. And we pray constantly for their return.
What if that Loved One saw a “Catholics Come Home” message and returned this Christmas? Well this Christmas, many of our Loved Ones will return here, inspired in part by the Catholics Come Home campaign which has already helped nearly half a million people to return to Jesus and His Church, elsewhere in the United States. Starting this Christmas, we will send the message, loud and clear, that we want Catholics back home with us. And you can help! Support our campaign.
Visit CatholicsComeHome.org and share this invitation with those you know. Discuss these messages when they air on TV or through social media. How appropriate that at Christmas, we have a chance to share the greatest gift of all, our faith.
NEW ALTAR SERVER CLASSES for students in 4th grade and older will be held: Saturday, November 1 at 9 am Monday, November 3 at 7 pm Saturday, November 8 at 9 am Each class will last approximately 1 hour. Please email the Parish Office (by Oct. 29th) to register: Parish@JP2Parish.org
