Growing in Faith

July 2021 Issue

Love one another, especially those who are different

  • Jesus asks that we see and love everyone as family, especially those who are different than us. The main article on page one explains. 
  • As the pandemic slowly recedes many dioceses are reinstating the obligation to attend Mass. The main article on page two explains the benefits of going back to in-person worship. 
  • Just as every member of a family has household duties to help a household run well, every Catholic has a “household” job. Our popular Q&A feature explains.
