ICC NEWSLETTER - AUGUST 24, 2018
Energetic. Enthusiastic. Earnest. Catholic.
The sun is out. It's been a longtime coming in Irvington, and this week it decided to grace us with its presence. A little sunlight changes the way we see things, doesn't it? Whether you are home, or out and about, the sun seems to add joy to everything we do - even the boring stuff.
That's the way our Faith should make us feel. That is why we have the Eucharist. Christ, His love and Sacrifice, sheds light on even our darkest times.
While it is still sunny out, whether you are at the beach or the mall, in your backyard, at work, or doing laundry... give thanks for Christ's love for us, and give thanks for being Catholic. Now for the news.

CONFIDENCE, STRENGTH AND PREPARATION
If you've ever felt uncertain about how to explain the Faith to others, you are not alone. The overwhelming majority of us are not theologians, and many of us have not picked up a Catholic text book since grade school.
These days, too, it may feel like each of us is called on to explain what we believe and why we believe it, more than ever before
There's a simple way to prepare yourself. There's a simple way to learn without picking up a heavy text, and spending hours studying.
