DMA:
Today is Commitment Sunday for the 2014 Diocesan Ministries Appeal. Watching the video today, we are reminded
of the good work the DMA is doing in ministries too big for parishes to do alone. Remember, in supporting the DMA, we
contribute to those important ministries in the diocese, and also support the project we have identified below. As we reflect on
what our pledge should be, prayerfully keep in mind God’s generosity to you. Recognizing that generosity, the DMA offers a
great opportunity to return to God a part of that which we have received.

WORD—ADULT
Does Everyone Need to belong
to a Formal Small Christian
Community?
Everyone needs to be in a Christian community, not everyone
has the calling and opportunity to belong to a formal
Christian community. Christians through the centuries have
lived in Christian community without anyone formally
organizing these communities in detail. A formal
organization of Christian community will encourage the
development of new communities, and increase the
community's impact in evangelization. Want to be part of a
Small Christian Community? Contact Anisabel at 320-235
