ARISE Good News from Corpus Christi Parish
in South Bend, Indiana
Parishes in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend have formed their parish teams and are forming the small groups for ARISE Together in Christ's Season One faith sharing, Encountering Christ Today. The enthusiasm at Corpus Christi Parish in South Bend is on the rise and Parish Co-Coordinator Vicki Niswonger shared the "good news" with RENEW Assistant Director Sr. Honora Nolty:
There is a big ARISE banner flying outside the church. The parish team was commissioned in June and all of them wear "Ask Me" buttons featuring the ARISE logo to mass and all parish functions. The pastor is very supportive and involved, and is sending a letter to all 700 families in the parish inviting them to "Sign Up Sunday" on September 15 & 16. The speakers are lined up for all the masses. Commissioning of the small community leaders will take place after Sign Up Sunday. This Parish Team is "ready to go."
