Yes, we're moving and I'm trying to get this email out to you from an office strewn with moving boxes, disassembled desks and moving people running around.
We are moving out of our Old Town Pasadena office today and hope to get settled into our new offices in a few days. And no, it's not a misprint, we really are opening two new offices - one in West Covina CA and another one in Simi Valley, CA The new addresses can be found in www.parishworld.net.
This move will allow us to better serve our readers and our rapidly growing network of Catholic parishes. Service will not be interrupted during this move, our entire network will be unaffected and our phone numbers will remain unchanged.
If your parish is not yet a member of our network, we are now better equipped and more centrally located to service your needs. Please do call or email us and we will be more than glad to set up an online presence for your parish in no time at all. And do send this free subscription to your children, your parents, siblings and everyone else who could use a dose of God's grace weekly.
Despite the hustle and bustle of our office move, we still managed to prepare a packed issue for you this week. Was Jesus political? Is God really Pro-life? How do you set-up a bible study group in your parish? What exactly is RCIA and how does it affect me? We have the meditation that the Pope reflected upon during his Lenten Retreat this week. How did the Eucharist come about and why do we celebrate it? What about televised Masses? And much more.
We take a quick look around the world as we explore Catholicism in Vietnam, in Scotland, in Canada, in Hollywood, in Afghanistan, even in Mongolia. And we bring you stories that will inspire you - how to deal with life's problems, why you need to catch a moment to listen to your children, a poem about Christians by Maya Angelou, the conversion of someone who became one of only five deaf priests in America. And more.
Did you know that tea can prevent ovarian cancer? And do you know the secrets that drive the twelve most successful people in the world today. We have these stories and over fifty others in this week's issue of ParishWorld. Check it out.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend. As for us, it will be about unpacking boxes and restoring order so we can hit the ground running at an even faster pace beginning next week.
Have a great and blessed weekend.
Keep the faith. peace.
