As part of a recent evangelization outreach, the Archdiocese of Detroit is launching a Christmas campaign to welcome Catholics who may have been away from the Church.
"This is the way that we are responding to the invitation to share the Gospel with others. This is part of the transformation of being a mission-oriented diocese," Edmundo Reyes, the archdiocese's communication director, told CNA.
The campaign is called "Part of the Family." Its goal is to create a welcoming environment at Mass and encourage evangelization among the parishioners through virtual tools.
Reyes said these efforts are an extension of the pastoral letter "Unleash the Gospel" released at Pentecost last year. The letter followed several years of preparation, including a year of prayer in 2014 and a synod meeting in 2016.
