The diocese’s pastoral planning process, Know, Love & Serve, takes a major step forward this week with the publication of Bishop Cupich’s letter, Joy Made Complete. The letter outline a Diocesan Pastoral Plan which Catholics throughout the Diocese are called to implement over the next four years. The text is online at the diocesan website. The text also will be published in the September 18 issue of the Inland Register. Likewise, all registered Catholics in the Diocese will receive a printed version in the mail. Please take time to read the Bishop’s letter and commit yourself to work with our parish leaders as we implement the Pastoral Plan he outlines for us. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, our efforts will bear much fruit.
This year Pope Francis canonized Saint John XXIII and Saint John Paul II. Both made immense contributions to the social teaching of the Church on the dignity of labor and its importance to human flourishing. St. John Paul II called work “probably the essential key to the whole social question” (Laborem Exercen, No. 3) and St. John XXIII stressed workers are “entitled to a wage that is determined in accordance with the precepts of justice” (Pacem in Terris, No. 20)
In total, the Diocese of Spokane sent over $27,000 to Catholic Relief Services for their hunger and nutrition programs around the world – all from the bills and coins dropped into your Lenten Rice Bowl. Thanks for your faithful support!
