Baptism Matters

Parish-Wide Initiative

Parents present their children for baptism for a wide variety of reasons. While we always hope that parents will come because they want to pass on their deep faith to their children, whatever brings them to our door is a cause for rejoicing. We have an opportunity for evangelization before us. Baptism Matters not only prepares parents and godparents to fully enter into the sacrament with their child, but also provides parishes with the tools to transform sacramental preparation into an evangelizing experience.

Everyday Witness

Small-Group Books

In Everyday Witness, RENEW’s own Sister Theresa Rickard, O.P., offers seven simple habits to help fellow Catholics more comfortably talk about and model Christian faith in our everyday lives. Each chapter includes Sister Terry’s reflection on witnessing the faith in her own life, a brief survey of what the Bible says on the topic, and the story of an ordinary person who gives witness to their faith in an extraordinary way. Each chapter also offers self-reflection questions, simple ideas about how to grow the habit, and a closing prayer that gives us not only food for thought but also practical help for becoming better witnesses to our Catholic faith.
