What exactly is the good news of the Gospel?  There's an old song that says: “Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got till it's gone.”  The next Spiritual Film Club selection, “Edge of Dreaming”  does just that.  It tells a great story about a decent loving woman who is nonetheless completely secularized.

cch-logowvaticanThis week, we hear more about Jesus calling his disciples to join Him. Simon, Andrew, James, and John were just simple fishermen doing their jobs, but when Jesus called, they left behind everything they knew to follow Him. They chose to begin a new life.

Our Catholics Come Home media campaign is nearing its end, however, for those who have recently heard Christ’s call, this is just the beginning! They will need us to keep them in mind as they abandon their nets and follow Him. As they choose to begin a new life, let our parish support them in every way possible – prayer, fellowship, formation, and love.
