ACTION ITEM! Video about the revival of a inner city parish by using actual Catholicism

I want about 15 minutes of your time.

If you are a bishop or a priest or a seminarian, please give your special attention.

Below is an excerpt from a documentary to be shown soon on EWTN (30 April 6:30 EDT) about the vision that has revived an inner city church and parish in Omaha.

St. Peter’s in Omaha. HERE

The documentary is called Where Heaven Meets Earth.

These priests have their heads screwed on in the right direction and I give them high marks.

You will note along the way that, as part of their backstory, they inspired by what Fr. Philips did at St. John Cantius in Chicago. However, part of that backstory is that St. John’s was in part inspired by what Msgr. Richard Schuler did at St. Agnes in St. Paul.

What I love about this is how the baton get passed on.

But it not just a baton. The baton multiplies as it is passed on.

What follows is not rocket science. It is especially well articulated, however.

I’d enjoy visiting this parish some day.

After you try out my donation button, you might go over there and try theirs.

Hey, people write to me all the time asking about good causes to donate to, things they don’t worry they are wasting their money on. I think this is one.

This is similar to what happened to Our Lady of Good Counsel in Kansas City. It is now full to the brim with huge families. Attending Mass there is definitely a unique experience. Certainly not what I grew up with in the 70’s and 80’s! I wish more parishes would go in this direction.
