Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington DC – my ordinary – is initiating a great evangelization campaign throughout the diocese this Lent. Cards have been made up with a personal invitation from the Archbishop to Catholics who are no longer practicing the faith. These are handed out to parishioners who are asked to give them to a friend, family member, co-worker or anyone they might know who has left the Church.
So often many people who return to the Faith do so simply because someone invited them. With this initiative Archbishop Wuerl has made it extremely easy for us to do the inviting.
The Archdiocese has a specific website for this effort as well as a video:
If you live in the Archdiocese of Washington, or even if you don’t, consider inviting someone home to the Church this Lent!
