Lay Participation

Leader's Action Inspires
Parish-Wide Marriage Study
CHULA VISTA CA, June 6, 2014 - When Catholics for the Common Good County Co-Chair Michael Brault approached Father Luke Jauregui, pastor of St. Pius X Parish in Chula Vista, CA about organizing a study program on the defense and promotion of the true meaning of marriage during Lent, he jumped at the opportunity.   At weekend Masses before Ash Wednesday he made an appeal to his parishioners, asking them to join a study group centered on Catholics for the Common Good's book "Getting the Marriage Conversation Right."   A total of 80 parishioners signed up to participate in one of 6 English or Spanish groups that met weekly.  Two of the groups were led by Father Jauregui himself.

-- The U.S. and other Western nations are “mission territory” for the Catholic Church in modern times, Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York stressed in a July 17 online posting.
