ANNOUNCING SPIRITUAL PROGRAMS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE (JUNIOR YOUTH AGES 11-15 & YOUTH OVER 15)

AGES 11-15 – JUNIOR YOUTH SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM – Engaging the individual during the period of junior youth in programs that seek to enhance their spiritual and intellectual capacities will anticipate the changes that will occur and prepare them to participate positively in the elevation of their lives as individuals and in their communities.

CATHOLIC VIEWPOINT, FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE

Catholic Viewpoint, Faith, Hope and Love
Now showing on Sac Faith TV
Channel 20, Comcast

For some time, Sacramento Faith TV has requested that Fr. Michael Kiernan do some presentations on Catholicism. Many faiths and various denominations have presentations on Sacramento Faith TV, so it seemed reasonable to have a Catholic voice. He accepted the offer and will now host a new 30 minute program called “Catholic Viewpoint, Faith, Hope and Love.” It will be available each week in the greater Sacramento area on SacFaith TV as follows:

Comcast Channel 20, at 7:00 AM Sunday, 9:30 AM Tuesday, 8:30 PM Wednesday and 5:00PM Thursday. You will also be able to view it on Sure West Channel 19, AT&T Channel 14, Simulcast and eventually YouTube.

This will be a positive and mostly guest driven program where people share how faith enriches their lives and view of the world. Feel free to invite others to join Fr. Michael and his guests for this time of Faith sharing each week!
