Archdiocese of Denver to Families: Our World Needs Saints


saints_among_usI was very happy this week to get a sneak peek at an amazing project coming out of the Archdiocese of Denver‘s Office of Evangelization and Family Life Ministries. The three minute video accompanies a major announcement that will be forthcoming from the Archdiocese on May 24. Per the “Saints Among Us” website:

Archbishop Aquila’s pastoral letter on the restored order of the sacraments of initiation, Saints Among Us, will be published here in May of 2015 along with answers to frequently asked questions and other educational resources.

I think you’ll agree that this brief video, narrated by Greg Willits and part of a 30 minute documentary to be released on the 24th, is quite compelling:

I’ll be watching the Archdiocesan website for the full announcement and will share it with you here. In the mean time, please share your thoughts on this initiative on the order of sacraments in the comments below. We welcome your insights on this important topic and its impact upon the Domestic Church. Please join me in praying for Archbishop Aquila, for his staff and for the families of the Archdiocese of Denver.
