In the Spotlight
St. Ann by the Sea Parish, Marshfield
Catholic Appeal Coordinator, Catherine Rein, is the Pastoral Assistant and Director of Religious Education at her home parish of St. Ann by the Sea in Marshfield. In collaboration with Fr. John Carmichael, pastor at St. Ann's, and with the enthusiastic support of a dedicated lay committee, Catherine successfully implemented new and creative ways to promote the Appeal. Some of these ideas included coordinating witness talks given by young adults on the impact of Campus Ministry, and a special witness talk by Fr. Shawn Carey on his work in the Deaf Apostolate, a ministry made possible by the Appeal.
"The Catholic Appeal strengthened and unified our parish," Catherine said. "It really helped us come together to support the rich resource we have in the larger Church of Boston, and its tireless effort to bring the love of Jesus Christ to every facet of the Archdiocese."
Thank you to Catherine and to all Appeal Coordinators who are making the 2013 Appeal a success in their parish!
