Windows are broken, roofs are torn apart, and doors remain locked at many CCD classrooms. The aftermath of Typhoon Soudelor is prevalent on island weeks after it made landfall, but if last Sunday's Commissioning of Catechists is any indication of the state of the islands' faith, then the work of spreading the Good News remains untarnished.
28 catechists, coordinators and assistant coordinators from the island's parishes were commissioned on Catechetical Sunday, themed "Safeguarding the Dignity of Every Human Person."
In this coming week, Fr. Jason Granado and the itinerant family of Saipan will be joining the thousands of families from around the world who will gather in Philadelphia to pray, learn, and celebrate the gift of the family. The 8th World Meeting of Families which will coincide with the first visit of Pope Francis to the United States will be held from September 22 – 27, 2015.
