1. Saying Goodbye to a Great Staffer: Edial
    Please help me wish Edial a wonderful blessed journey as he steps down from CF staff.
    His footprint on our ministry will always remain but his presence will be greatly missed. I'm sure he will come around as a member to all his favorite forums but for now please join me at his profile page to wish him many thanks for the years of service he has brought to us all.
    All of us on CF staff will miss him dearly!!

    I was too when we first started having those numbers about 5 years ago, but it's kept up ever since. I don't know why it happens but it does.

    To me it seems that Catholicism with it's strict pro-life, pro-traditional marriage and pro-family teachings has attracted Evangelicals. Most of them that I met were happy to be part of a faith that didn't change on a whim with the latest fad.

    It's just weird to think that in a city of 100,000 people with only about 2500 Catholics that across three parishes we manage almost or over 180 converts a year. Over the course of 10 years thats almost doubling the Catholic population here with converts alone.

    Lord knows why it happens but I just pray it continues.
