WARRENSBURG -St. Cecilia's Catholic Church has launched a new program to welcome back parishioners who have dropped out of active membership. Called "Landings," the program begins Wednesday, March 9 and continues for eight weeks.
Landings is a Paulist Ministry program that has been offered in parishes throughout central New York and elsewhere.
The program's two-hour weekly meetings are held in private homes from 7 to 9 p.m. A small group of active Catholics, some who were themselves returnees, join with returning Catholics to share and explore faith together. The meetings offer a supportive community where questions can be asked and issues discussed giving a chance to grow and learn from the spiritual journeys of one another, a program sponsor said.
"We offer a safe place, a "Landings" place to be listened to, a place for understanding and healing," the sponsor said.
Those interested or know of someone in the neighborhood or in one's own family who would be interested in participating, call 623-9313, or send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and details will be provided. Pre-registration is required prior to the start of the program.
