Wilde Lake Interfaith Center
Everywhere we look, people are searching – trying to find answers to life’s hard questions, desiring community, and wondering about God. For many in the Millennial and Gen Z Generations (born between 1981-2012), faith has become an especially complicated topic to be understood rather than a loving relationship to be lived. Because of this, many have chosen to walk away from the Church and/or worship in other denominations.
As a Catholic Church, we have often failed to effectively reach these generations and their children. But Jesus makes it clear that we must not lose hope. If He “leaves the 99 for the 1,” so must we. With the Lord’s help, it might not be as difficult as we think.
If you are interested in hearing practical ways to “reach the one,” join us for our next Pastoral Planning seminar hosted by parish leaders Lisa Scata & Clare Bowen. Extending Clare’s talk from February, we will discuss tangible ways to reach the lost and bring the next generation to church.
