Confirmation - Pentecost

What is the largest Pentecostal-Charismatic Church in the World?  The Holy Catholic Church!

 

This Sunday we celebrate the feast of Pentecost, but do we 'get it?' Do we understand how this Feast makes all things new?

 

We all receive the Holy Spirit at Confirmation, but do we know how to activate His powerful gifts in our daily lives?

 

Visit The Crossroads Initiative and read Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio's article The Gifts and the Charisms of The Holy Spirit.

Our Youth - Really Need Your Help!

What are our Youth Worth?Two weeks ago, we launched an urgent Spring appeal.  We thank those of you have generously responded. But we really need to hear from more of you -- we are very far from our goal.

 

We are in the midst of exciting projects -- that can have enormous impact on reaching the millions of youth all over the world who are dropping out of an active life of faith.  But we have come to the end of our resources and need immediate assistance.

 

Our goal is to raise $20,000 by the end of June to throw out a lifeline to our youth.  Can you help us reach our goal?  We are still short $14,353! If each family that benefits from this email newsletter were to make a contribution today of $20 or more, we could do it!

 

You can do it online right here, by phone at 800-803-0118, or by mailing a check to Crossroads, PO BOX 271227, Flower Mound, TX 75027. 

 

Yes, there are lots of ministries and charities.  But don’t you think the spiritual future of our youth is a top priority?

When the Church was Young: Voices of the Early Fathers
In this engrossing book, Dr. Marcellino D'Ambrosio brings out the colorful personalities of dynamic Christian leaders from the age of the apostles up to the dawn of the middles ages and makes their rich teaching accessible, enjoyable, and relevant to the challenges we face every day.

First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community, 10-Part Study (4 DVDs)
The conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth were in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians. With divisions, immorality, persecution, and other trials of the faithful, the message of St. Paul to the Corinthians is a much-needed message for our own times. First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community explores the key elements that the apostle Paul introduced to a new and growing Church. St. Paul taught the Corinthians about the nature of grace and the Church as the Body of Christ. In addition, he introduced the Corinthian Christians to the most powerful gift of all, the Eucharist.
In this DVD series Dr. Tim Gray provides comprehensive teaching and commentary on Paul's First Letter to the Corinthians. Each 30 minute talk is designed to follow a lesson in the First Corinthians Study Set.

Perfect length for a SUMMER Study!!

New Catholic Answers Bible - Revised
Here's the whole text of the New American Bible, along with answers to all the most important questions about the Catholic Faith. Why do we believe in the Real Presence? Why do we venerate the saints? How are good works necessary for salvation? The answers are all in the Bible. But until now, finding them has meant juggling books and flipping pages. This is the one book that gives you the complete answers in their Scripture context, with more than 800 references to Scripture and the Catechism.
