What's New?

Mary Ellen Robinson
Chief Operating Officer

October 2014

Dear Friends,

           The Christophers have a beautiful News Note coming out on the life of Pope Francis, and we encourage everyone to request extra copies and spread them around so the inspiring way he has lived his life can be known and emulated by each person in their own unique way. We also continue to ask for prayers for our Holy Father during these trying times, that he will remain in good health and protected from harm as he champions the plight of the suffering and persecuted around the world.

            We are so grateful for the letters we receive from our Christopher friends in response to our News Notes and for the many suggestions for future topics to cover. This kind of positive feedback helps remind us how important this aspect of our ministry truly is. We are constantly inspired by stories that tell of how individuals and families have been touched by our message of hope and we thank those willing to share with us in this way.

            Another important aspect of our ministry is our leadership program, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the success of our latest one-day workshop at the Basilica of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Brooklyn. The Christopher Leadership team presented a dynamic learning experience that focused on each person’s ability to become faith-filled leaders. Building confidence and developing a positive attitude were among topics explored by the class of twenty-two participants, which included pastoral council leaders and parish clergy and religious. Discussion, reflection and small group activities rounded out a day filled with inspiration, uplifting sharing and laughter.

Lastly, please be sure to check out Father Morris’ latest video on the topic of sadness and depression, an issue all people have to face at times and one that some struggle with regularly. He offers concrete advice on tackling the problem by reaching out to others for help, and we hope everyone will be sure to take a few moments to watch and listen to all his videos because his words can bring healing and insight to anyone with an open heart.

Please continue to stay in touch with us and keep our mission in your prayers and hearts and know that we keep you in ours always.

 

 

Joyfully,

 

Mary Ellen Robinson

Vice President/COO
