TONIGHT: Parishioners to hear from archbishop & weigh in on issues facing the church

In an ongoing effort to put his finger on the pulse of the Catholic Church in Alaska, Anchorage Archbishop Paul Etienne is continuing a series of listening sessions at parishes across Southcentral Alaska. The next session is Tuesday, March 20, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Anchorage. The meeting begins at 7 p.m. and Catholics from across the archdiocese are welcome to attend.

Outreach aims to reconnect Hispanics with Catholic roots

Through person-to-person contact participants were able to engage in dialogue and find out whether someone considers himself a Catholic and feels welcomed by the local faith community. These conversations provided insights into the lives of those on the margins of the church, and allowed participants to further reflect on their own involvement in the faith and to build leadership skills.
