callmissionDV 352: A CALL TO MISSION
You may call it “Mission,” or “calling,” “vocation,” or “purpose,” it all boils down to serving people according to Gospel principles.  Traditionally, we picture priests or nuns doing “Mission” in foreign lands, but that’s not the only way it’s done.  This DVD shows foreign and domestic missions being done by lay people as well as religious.  There are many needs, and many ways to do mission, it’s limited only by your imagination.  Watch this to begin Mission Sunday discussions, Confirmation preparations, vocations programs or jsut to get some ideas about how you can help build the kingdom!    21 minutes in length for Junior High, Senior High, Adults

secularity DV 350: SECULARITY AND THE GOSPEL: BEING MISSIONARIES TO OUR OWN CHILDREN
The toughest missionary task in the world today is communicating the faith to our own children. Secular culture, with its many distractions, has some particular resistances to the Gospel even as it contains much that is moral..  Is secular culture post-Christian?  How much is our culture a culture of life and how much is it a culture of death?  How do we become missionaries inside of secular culture, missionaries to our own children?  Rev. Ronald Rolheiser, OMI takes you on a journey of discovery through history and scripture to shed light on our culture and the challenge we face passing faith onto future generations.  DVD is in 3 parts for a total of 170 minutes.  Adult audience

Catholic Faith Inventory for New Catholics, Young Adults and Seekers

 This edition of Catholic Faith Inventory (CFI) is a free online survey that helps people appreciate their experience of faith and identify areas for spiritual growth. Individuals complete the survey and receive back, via email, the results of their responses in a workbook that they can use for journaling or discussion with a spiritual director, if they choose. The CFI is ideal for young adults, new Catholics, and Catholics who want to become more active in their own faith formation. Seekers who are interested in the Catholic faith may also find it helpful.
