September 2010


Dear Friend,

September 2010

With September into full swing and the official end of summer upon us, it seems people’s calendars and responsibilities crank up a notch, maybe many notches for some.  We hope that, whatever occupies your “to do” list, the mission of evangelization remains a priority.  We continue to seek for ways to help you in this mission and to provide practical resources for carrying out this mission

Let us know how we can serve you and the Church.  We always welcome your comments and stories, and the major articles in this issue include a space for you to offer comments. Let us hear from you and consider sending this to a friend. Thank you.
