Father Bart Timmerman explains the season of Lent in which we strengthen our faith. We can strengthen our faith by three traditional practices. The first practice is prayer, where we are encouraged to spend more time in prayer and challenged to add more prayer into our daily routines to become closer with Christ. The second practice is fasting, where we give something up to focus on God, and not on the things of this world.
Father Bart Timmerman speaks about how St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church takes the call to engage in the New Evangelization quite seriously. Knowing that Mass attendance, baptisms and marriages in the Church are down, we must do our part to turn this scenario around. The lives and souls of so many people adrift in the modern world depend upon it. St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church developed a five-year plan to address this crisis of discipleship by becoming an evangelizing parish.
