Prayers of the Faithful


Included in your Parish Kit is a DVD with Bishop Malesic’s message to the faithful as well as four other shorter videos highlighting client impact stories to be used on In-Pew Weekend. 

To ensure all audiences have the opportunity to view the video, please refer to the Livestreaming Guide here. 

These videos help to illustrate the many services provided to thousands of people in each part of our diocese every day through Catholic Charities programs and services. They tell the stories of real people whose lives have been changed by Catholic Charities and the importance of promoting it to your parishioners cannot be overstated.
