During the Easter vigil Mass, in so many parishes, a moving moment comes when the faithful welcome new believers: catechumens (those who receive baptism, Communion and confirmation) and candidates (already baptized) who have typically completed the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA).

According to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, tens of thousands of converts across the country joined the Church as full disciples of Christ this year.

In England and Wales, at Easter, some 900 members of the Church of England were received into the Catholic Church, including 61 former Church of England priests. They joined a new Catholic entity, called the Personal Ordinariate of Our...READ MORE

Dan McCloy places sandbags around his home located on Bayou Melhomme in Stephensville, La., May 14. This small community north of Morgan City is in the flood plain of the Morganza spillway. With the continuing release of water from the swollen Mississippi through the spillway, the river was expected to top out at 45 feet at Baton Rouge, La.

KROTZ SPRINGS, La. — “When I leave with the Blessed Sacrament, you’d better leave with me,” Father Mark Ledoux is telling his parishioners, “because then it’s really going to be time to go.” 

St. Anthony of Padua in Krotz Springs, La., where Father Ledoux is pastor, is a few blocks from the swollen Atchafalaya River, caught between two floodways. Krotz Springs is one of the many small towns in Louisiana’s colorful Cajun country facing the possibility of severe flooding now that the Morganza Spillway has been opened to relieve pressure on the Mississippi River and spare more heavily populated New Orleans and Baton Rouge.

Many families in places like Krotz Springs have already left or are...READ MORE

WASHINGTON — The Navy has reversed its decision to permit chaplains to preside at same-sex “marriages” in military chapels, after strong protests from Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives.

The military’s abrupt reversal last week underscored the political minefield created by the combined effect of the phased-out repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and the Obama administration’s decision not to defend the constitutionality of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which prohibits federal recognition of same-sex “marriage.”

Fearing that the Navy’s accommodation of same-sex “marriage” would set a precedent for future challenges to DOMA and create conscience issues for chaplains who...READ MORE
