Pope at Mass: “Evangelization is the Spirit’s Work”

Pope 041918April 19, 2018 (Vatican Media) During his homily at Thursday morning’s Mass at Santa Marta, Pope Francis reminded us that every Christian has an obligation and a mission to accomplish: evangelization. “Get up”, draw near”, and “start with an actual situation” are three keys to unlock what evangelization is.

The Pope said that evangelization is not proselytism. True evangelization takes place under the action of the Holy Spirit. It is the Spirit who indicates in mysterious ways where we are to go and to whom we are to “proclaim the name of Jesus”, Pope Francis said. Read more here.

Ecumenical Lutheran/Catholic Prayer Service April 29th

Fr. Peter Muhich

  1. On Sunday April 29th at 3:00 PM there will be an Ecumenical Prayer Service marking the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation bringing together members of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and St. Mary Star of the Sea parish.  Since the fire at Gloria Dei a couple of years ago St. Mary Star of the Sea has cooperated with Gloria Dei to provide their monthly breakfast to the Central Hillside neighborhood and we have gotten to know each other better.  The Prayer Service on Sunday April 29th will be an opportunity for us to recognize the progress that has been made in Catholic/Lutheran relations and to ask God to help us to give an effective common witness to Jesus Christ.  This event is open to the general public.
