The Beauty of the Catholic Church is a video produced as a part of the Parish Reflection sessions that will be held across the Archdiocese this year in preparation for the Archdiocesan Synod, which will take place in June 2014. Each parish session includes three parts: Catholic Identity, Evangelization and Stewardship. This video touches on the three key components of ecclesiology — Church as Mystery, Church as Sacrament and Church as Communion — which are also discussed in Archbishop Listecki’s Pastoral Letter, “Who Do You Say That I Am?”
The Synod will provide the faith community the opportunity to develop a renewed vision of how we work together in implementing our pastoral priorities of Catholic Identity, Evangelization and Stewardship. The hope of the Synod will be to re-energize Catholics in their faith and inspire a new evangelization within the Church of southeastern Wisconsin. Though not a requirement, participants are also encouraged to read and reflect on this letter.
Viewers of this video are encouraged to promote and share it — showcasing The Beauty of the Catholic Church — in available channels such as e-mail, Facebook, parish Web sites and other available social media channels. For more information on the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Synod event .
