CARDINAL WINNING REACHES OUT TO LAPSED

    GLASGOW (CWNews.com) - Every Catholic family in Glasgow Archdiocese is to receive a personal letter from Scotland's Cardinal Thomas Winning inviting them to rediscover the power of God.

    The letter, which will be delivered to 100,000 homes over the next few weeks, as part of the archdiocese's Jubilee Year Project to reach those Catholics who do not come to church.

    "Our priority is to reach out to all the baptized, not just those who attend Mass," Father Paul Conroy told the February edition of Flourish. "The Church is a place where people are entitled to be welcome and belong even if they do not exercise that experience. We want to make sure that message reaches every Catholic family."

    Father Conroy, who is Glasgow's Episcopal Vicar for Pastoral Action, continued: "The Jubilee Project aims to give the maximum number of people an experience of the kind of neighborhood group which could be a central and permanent part of our diocesan programme of renewal."

    "We have to bridge the gap between life and faith," he continued. "Too often what we profess and how we live our lives are at odds. By coming together and looking at our lives in the light of the Gospel, then we can support and encourage each other to more effectively witness to the life of Christ."

    Cardinal Winning's letter invites Catholics to "make a journey of faith and discovery with me this year."

    He writes: "This is the year to come back to God and the Church. Let's find out together how alive and active the Gospel is. Let's take the Good News into our families and build up communities formed by the Gospel."
