Welcome to the first issue of Faith Journey for 2021. We hope you like our new design as well as the addition of a third article called "Going Deeper". This article will usually highlight something from our website or link to interesting content that will complement the main article.

Remember that the audience of Faith Journey includes people who are interested in the Catholic faith, but who might not be a Catholic or who might not be part of a community who gather each week for Mass. If you know someone who might benefit from receiving this reflection, please use the "Forward to Friend" link found at the bottom of this email.

As always, we are happy to hear from you especially if you have ideas for articles in 2021 or if you have questions about the Catholic faith.
