As the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops meet this week in their fall assembly in Baltimore, we continue to spread the 5 Theses message.
Pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ, especially the bishops and their staff.
Continue to communicate with church leadership and fellow parishioners, speaking with civility and love, with wisdom and understanding.
Keep putting 5 Theses postcards and letters in the mail, in the collection basket at mass, on parish bulletin boards and church doors. Distribute in person and online.
Post pictures on social media of yourself and the 5 Theses - in your hands, heading to the mailbox or on your church or cathedral door, tag #5theses and @5theses. These posts are encouraging to us as we seek renewal.
Strengthen our Church: Get involved in your home parish. Support a new ministry with time, talent, and prayer. Thank overworked and often under-appreciated staff and clergy.
Be the persistent Canaanite woman who did not give up when the apostles told Jesus to send her away. "You are a woman of great faith. What you ask will be done for you." Matthew 15:28.
What we’re hoping to see: A real, written response from the bishops that addresses each of the statements in the 5 THESES, as well as actions from individual priests and bishops to encourage the healing and renewal of our beloved Church.
