Great Book by Dr. Allen Hunt

I love conversion stories. We all know family and friends who have left the Catholic Church, so it’s refreshing to hear stories of people who converted to Catholicism, and what led them on their journey.

Allen Hunt was a successful mega-church pastor, who converted to the Catholic Church a few years ago. His book, ” Confessions of a Mega Church Pastor: How I Discovered the Hidden Treasures of the Catholic Church” is a powerfully written book for those wanting to learn more about the Catholic Church, and for cradle Catholics who may have taken the Church for granted. In this book he describes his faith journey that ultimately resulted in his conversion to Catholicism. He had to overcome years of misinformation about the Catholic Church on his journey home.

For all of you who have converted to the Catholic faith, welcome home! Thank you for your love and passion for our beautiful faith!



Shrove Tuesday!

Happy Mardis Gras, Fat Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday, Pancake Tuesday . . . Ash Wednesday Eve! On this day, the Church feasts before she enters into a more solemn and penitential season called Lent. “Shrove” is the past tense of the word “shrive,” which means to hear a confession, assign penance, and absolve from sin. Are you eating pancakes today?

Ash Wednesday marks the beginning of the 40 days of Lent (Sundays excluded from this number). Lent begins tomorrow on Ash Wednesday. Don’t forget to get your ashes! What are you planning on giving up or doing this Lenten season to grow closer to Christ?
