Year of the Family

A Message from Most Rev. Robert J. Cunningham, Bishop of Syracuse:

Over the past few months, I have been prayerfully reflecting on our diocesan mission of evangelization.  The term evangelization, although used frequently now in our public discourse, is one that is not easily understood by many.  We know it to mean “bringing the Good News of Jesus into every situation and seeking to convert individuals and society by the divine power of the Gospel itself.”

It is my sincerest belief that we in the Church must focus on the family if we are to be successful in carrying out the mission of the Church.  To that end, I have written a second pastoral letter, Enriching the Church, The Role of the Family in the Life of the Church of Syracuse and BeyondRead the pastoral letter by clicking here.
