No Confirmation for non-practising Catholics

March 18, 2013

There may be some rationale for confirming non-practising Catholics but I cannot figure out what it is and why we do this. Year after year, we confirm thousands of children who obviously are not practising the Catholic faith and, presumably, come from families where it is not being practised.

The latest blow is slashing the foreign aid budget of the CCODP, reducing that aid to a for-profit business venture (“Ottawa had no reason to slash CCODP funding,” WCR, Jan. 28).

New beginnings would benefit Catholic education

February 4, 2013

The 2012-13 Year of Faith recognizes the priceless treasure of Catholic schools as an indispensable instrument of evangelization. Dr. John Acheson’s article in the WCR (“Catholic education battles secular push in today’s society,” Dec. 17) reminds us of the critically important role that Catholic schools play in evangelization.
