Pastoral Letter from Archbishiop Richard Smith

Archbishop Smith has issued a Pastoral Letter inviting each of us to renew our focus on Scripture as we answer the call of Pope Francis, “to listen to the Word of God and to put it into practice.” The letter offers suggestions for how we may “Live In the Word of God”.

“Baptism makes us missionary disciples, endowed with many gifts and talents for the service of others in the name of the Lord. If a person is baptized in infancy, it is very easy to take for granted the wondrous gift bestowed by that sacrament. Pope Francis wants us to be fully aware of what it means to be baptized, to rejoice in the gift, and to embrace completely the Christian way of living.”
