Back to the Font: Attend a March 4 morning of reflection on your faith

-A A +A

Catholics in the Diocese of Pittsburgh are invited to discover the true meaning and impact of what happened to them on the day they were brought to the baptismal font.

“Back to the Font,” a morning of reflection, is an opportunity this Lent to consider and renew the call to discipleship as followers of Jesus.

The program, which will include prayer, presentation and discussion, will be held on Sat., March 4 from 9 a.m. to noon at 15 parishes across the diocese, and at St. Paul Seminary. There is no cost to participate.

The program will explore how Jesus calls everyone to discipleship, to share his or her unique gifts with the Church, and to lead others in faith.

Sessions will be held on March 4 at the following locations, in the church hall unless otherwise noted:  

St. Alphonsus, Wexford (school cafeteria); St. Bonaventure, Glenshaw; St. Cecilia, Rochester; St. Frances Cabrini, Center Twp.; Holy Family, New Brighton; Immaculate Conception, Washington; St. James the Apostle, Pulaski; St. Katharine Drexel (Ave Maria church), Bentleyville; St. Michael, Avella; Our Lady of Joy, Holiday Park; St. Paul Seminary, Crafton (O’Connor Hall); St. Pius X, Brookline; St. Rita, Munhall; St. Stephen, Hazelwood; St. Vincent de Paul, New Castle; St. Wendelin, Carbon Center.

Although the program is free, registrations are encouraged at or call the Secretariat for Parish Services at 412-456-3180.

"Back to the Font" is part of On Mission for The Church Alive!, a diocesan-wide planning initiative in which Bishop David Zubik invites all Catholics to envision how parishes, schools and ministries can best respond to the changes in our communities so that they can be vital centers of worship and service, and deepen people’s relationship with Jesus.
