As the United States Catholic Bishops meet in Rome this February:
Host a prayer service on February 21, 2019
Create your own, or you are welcome to adapt this program that will take place at St. Ignatius Chapel of Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Washington, DC at 8:00 PM on 2/21
"For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst." Matthew 18:20
continue to share and spread the 5 Theses message:

Keeping mailing postcards and letters , drop in the collection basket at mass, in the hand of your pastor as you leave church, on parish bulletin boards and church doors. Distribute in person and online. Contact us if you’d like to receive a batch of postcards to distribute
Instagram your actions - tag #5theses and @5theses. These posts are encouraging to us as we seek renewal.
Strengthen our Church: Get/stay involved in your home parish with time, talent, and prayer. Thank overworked and often under-appreciated staff and clergy.
Continue to communicate with church leadership and fellow catholics, speaking with civility and love, with wisdom and understanding.
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 results do we want? A real, written response from 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.
