Sodality focuses on bringing people back to church

A press release from the Green Bay Diocese website:

National speaker to offer tips to families, friends

Are you worried about a loved one who has left the Catholic faith?

Have you had a family member or friend start to drift away from the church, stop practicing their faith or have joined another faith?

Is this causing problems or a strain in your family or in your relationship with them?

Do you struggle not knowing what to say... or... if you should say anything?

Have you wished there was someone or somewhere you could go to share and to get some ideas and support?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then mark your calendar for Thursday, April 23, when Lorene Hanley Duquin will speak from 6 to 8 p.m. at Legends (Swan Club) of De Pere, 875 Heritage Road (map). Duquin is a nationally known speaker, author and coordinator of the "Come and See" program in the Diocese of Buffalo, New York, a ministry that reaches out to anyone who wants to establish, re-establish or strengthen their relationship with God or the Catholic Church.

Reservations are required. Call (920) 272-8310 by April 3. There is no charge for the evening but a count is needed for handouts and refreshments.

This event, which is partially funded by the Bishop’s Appeal, is sponsored by the Family and Married Life Office of the Diocese of Green Bay. The newly formed St. Monica Sodality is an effort to reach out to those who have family members or friends who are no longer practicing their Catholic faith. Its purpose is to provide support and information in a safe environment. Free kits with everything needed to start a group will be given out to anyone interested in having this ministry in their parish.
