Lent/A Year of Prayer for a New Pentecost
Description: In preparation for an archdiocesan-wide evangelization initiative involving clergy and faithful throughout metro Detroit, Archbishop Allen Vigneron is calling for us all to personally commit to a Year of Prayer for a New Pentecost starting on Ash Wednesday, March 5, 2014 and continuing to Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015. Evangelization, as the Archbishop explains, requires considering the presence of Jesus in our lives and to have a new openness to share our experience with others.
