The Four Signs

Incredible Possibilities for Your Life and Your Parish

What if each day, every Catholic prayed for ten minutes and read five pages of a great Catholic book? What if every Catholic gave one percent more of their income to their Church this year and did one thing each week to intentionally share God’s message with others? The Catholic Church would be staggeringly different from the Church today. But how do we get Catholics to take on these life-changing habits?

Based on Matthew Kelly’s best-selling book, The Four Signs of a Dynamic Catholic, this event is designed to help participants discover how to master the Four Signs in their own lives.

Women’s Mini Retreat – A Morning with Mary

Today’s Gospel encourages us to let our light shine and to be a force for good in the world. But that can be hard to do if we are tired, stressed and not in touch with the LORD. That is why Holy Trinity Parish is offering a retreat for women on Saturday, March 4. This half day retreat will have time for quiet reflection and prayer as well as uplifting music for praise and thanksgiving. It is an opportunity to relax, recharge and rest in the presence of God. This event is free and includes a light lunch. All participants will receive a booklet on the Way of the Cross with Mary.

RCIA

The archdiocesan Worship Office is offering nine RCIA topics on four Saturdays, January 14, 21, 28 and February 4, 2017 at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit.

RCIA, which stands for Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, is the program that brings new members into the Church. The Worship Office uses CSA funds to develop certification programs for RCIA ministers and formation for RCIA teams, as well as for RCIA consultation to parishes.

Because of CSA gifts, topics are only $5 each and will include an overview of the RCIA, the pre-catechumenate and catechumenate, presiding at minor rites, purification and enlightenment, and Canon Law for RCIA teams.

For more information about CSA-funded ministries, programs, and services, please go to www.AOD.org.
