Children of Mary offering new evangelization program

[Article from Catholic Times, 050612]

The Children of Mary community in Licking County is beginning a program of evangelization designed to bring people closer to the truth of the Catholic faith.

Based on a DVD that the community produced, the program will expose people to the eternal truths of Scripture, the teaching of the early church fathers, the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist, apostolic succession and the covenant God gave his people at the last supper.

The DVD will be shown at a series of parish conferences and at secular settings open to the general public. Participants from the conferences will be encouraged to form small prayer groups called ComeUnity for weekly faith study based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

The first presentation of the DVD will take place on Pentecost Sunday, May 27, at 1 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial, 300 W. Broad St., Columbus. Deacon Larry Oney, an international Catholic speaker from Louisiana, will be the keynote speaker, and Rachel Muha will give her testimony on the power of faith in the aftermath of the murder of her son.

Father Joshua Wagner will be on the program with his popular “Stump the Priest” session.

The day will conclude with a Eucharistic healing service. For more information, go to
