A Welcoming Heart We welcome the way Autumn brings a return to routine, a round of family holidays and new school and parish activities. As we reflect on our own homes and families, we also extend a welcome to the strangers in our midst.
Welcome the StrangerJoin us for our next online event, as Bishop Gerald Kicanas and Fr. Mike Pucke discuss the issue of immigration and what it means in the lives of Catholics, particularly in the United States. Register for this interesting and informative discussion and join us on September 25 with your own questions and concerns. Our September cover article in St. Anthony Messenger looks at this important issue as well.

Go Digital!Franciscan Media has rolled out a comprehensive site for all of our digital products, including the new digital access to the Catholic Update and I Believe libraries. Now parishes can distribute this material directly to their parishioners computers and other electronic devices, saving money and paper without sacrificing informative and inspirational content.
