Welcome To Our Parish: Connecting Our Tables, an Invitation to Come and See
Rev. Thomas J. Donaghy
The Catholic Church in the United States today is deeply affected, particularly on the parish level, by the economic and cultural movements that characterize our nation. Families are being uprooted and moved to other areas due to economic circumstances to a greater degree than the great migrations of the dust bowl and gold rush days. Planning and follow-up are paramount when a family arrives at a new parish.
