5th Sunday of Easter
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower.”
I’m very excited to announce a new, wonderful opportunity to grow in our knowledge and love of the faith: Lighthouse CDs.
Lighthouse Catholic Media records talks given by the best priests and theologians in the Church today, and makes these talks available on CD for just $3 each.
The topics cover everything in the Catholic world: Sacraments, Devotions, Theology, Prayer, etc.
I can tell you personally that Lighthouse CDs have helped me grow immensely in my knowledge and love of the faith.
Going forward, Immaculate Conception will be buying one new CD each month and make it available in our Lighthouse Kiosk in the back of church. I will highlight each month’s CD in the bulletin and at Mass, and explain why it is worth listening to and how it has impacted me personally.
Lighthouse CD’s are ideal for car rides, especially if you are commuting to or from work alone. I have listened to literally hundreds of hours of these CDs during my own time in the car, and not only does it make the drive much more interesting, but it helps me grow in faith at the same time.
Our first Lighthouse CD actually came out on Easter when we gave out the CD “Who am I to Judge?”. Next weekend, May 5 & 6, I will introduce our next CD.
Here are just a couple testimonies from the Lighthouse website:
“These presentations have made the Mass come alive and left me with a hunger to learn more. What a blessing!” – Russ, Dayton, OH
“I have found the presentations on the CDs so informative that we are now using them in our religious education classes. I heartily recommend your program and hope that your Faithraiser CDs get into many more parishes around the country.” – Fr. Pat, Chino Hills, CA
I hope this new initiative will help you and your family grow in knowledge and love of Christ and his Church.
You are in my daily prayers.
God bless you,
Fr. Nick VanDenBroeke
