"Alive and Well: The Faithful Affirm the Church" is a video produced as a part of the District Gatherings that will be held across the Archdiocese of Milwaukee this year in preparation for the Archdiocesan Synod, which will take place in June 7-8, 2014. Each district will discuss those aspects of the Church that were affirmed by the faithful during the parish sessions; and will also discuss where we can strengthen the mission of the Church. Representatives from all parishes will meet in in their respective districts.
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.
This video showcases individuals and their affirmations of the parish and our Church at large. Viewers of this video are encouraged to promote and share it in available channels such as e-mail, Facebook, parish Web sites and other available social media channels.
